Search warrants were executed on nine residences and six vehicles. Police seized an unspecified quantity of firearms and ammunition as well as cocaine, cannabis, hashish and methamphetamine.

Laval police were assisted in the operation by officers from the RCMP, the Sûreté du Québec and the police forces of Montreal, Longueuil, Deux-Montagnes and St-Jérôme.

Thursday’s raids were the result of an investigation launched in August aimed at reducing gun violence in the city. They were carried out less than two weeks after a shooting incident police said was related to gang violence that forced the lockdown of Collège Montmorency.
