Four individuals, including a man from Milton, have been charged by Halton Regional Police in connection with Project Guild, a six-month drug investigation. On March 30, police executed search warrants at a Milton residence, as well as two locations in Mississauga and associated vehicles. During the search, investigators seized a large quantity of drugs, including 15 kilograms of cocaine, more than a kilogram of fentanyl, a kilogram of ketamine, half a kilogram of ecstasy, and 285 grams of heroin, which were estimated to have a wholesale value of $1 million.
A 29-year-old man from Milton was charged with multiple counts of drug possession and trafficking, while a 27-year-old man from Edmonton was charged with two counts of drug possession for the purpose of trafficking. Two 26-year-old Mississauga residents are also wanted in connection with the investigation. Insp. Dave Costantini of regional investigative services cautioned that bulk quantities of illicit drugs are often mixed with toxic substances, posing a significant risk to public safety.
Anyone with information about the case is urged to contact the Drug and Human Trafficking Unit at 905-825-4777, ext. 5331, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or online at www.crimestoppers.ca. It should be noted that the charges have not yet been proven in court, and the accused are innocent until proven guilty.
