Nine people are facing charges after an investigation into an alleged drug trafficking network in the Prince Albert area.
The investigation began in November 2017 when police learned about a possible drug trafficking organization moving large amounts of cocaine and marijuna into the area, RCMP said in a news release.
From mid-July through early August the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit executed search warrants at numerous residences and made several arrests in the area.
Police seized weapons, a large quantity of drugs and four vehicles.
The nine people charged, ranging from 21 to 43-years-old, made their first court appearance on Tuesday.
Investigators believe the group was responsible for a significant amount of illegal drugs flowing into the Prince Albert area.
