Montreal police bust 2 fentanyl trafficking rings, arrest 7 - HA related

Montreal police dismantled two drug trafficking rings in connection with a recent spate of fentanyl-related deaths and overdoses in the city. Cops from the Montreal police service's violent crimes unit carried out two operations, executing seven search warrants and arresting 10. The two drug rings, which police say trafficked heroin and fentanyl, were related to a 'criminal biker gang'. The arrests were related to at least six recent fentanyl-related deaths and scores of overdoses in Montreal.

Arrested are Yann Bouthillette, 33. Alain Julien, 28. Dominique Gauthier, 23. François Vallières, 48. Joey Marcil, 19. Dominique Leblanc, 20. and Steven Lallemant, 20.
