Six individuals were arrested while ten firearms, quantities of narcotics and more than $300,000 were seized during a major punch operation in Mauricie on Wednesday.

Investigators from the Sûreté du Québec, in collaboration with the Trois-Rivières police, preceded around fifty searches in the areas of Shawinigan, Saint-Boniface and Trois-Rivières.

At the end of this operation, three of the suspects remained in detention and their three acolytes were released and appear later, said the Sûreté du Québec in a press release.

The searches carried out by the Regional Mixed Squad (ERM) Mauricie led to the seizure of five firearms, more than 17,300 tablets of methamphetamines, 900 grams of cocaine, contraband tobacco.

A hashish press, two liters of GHB, more than 1,800 grams of psilocybin and nearly $44,000 were also seized during the same operation carried out in part as part of the ACCES Cannabis program.

Elements of the Contraband Investigation Service seized five firearms, more than 395 kg of cannabis pots in bulk, more than 1,100 cannabis plants and nearly $261,000.
