Cocaine dealer to be deported, another must repay $212K after serving prison term

The last of 14 people charged in a 2014 police probe that targeted high-level cocaine dealers in Manitoba are headed to prison. Jared Devloo 38, and Jason Ong 32, were convicted of a number of drug offence in October 2017. Devloo was sentenced to two 10-year prison terms to be served concurrently and fined $212,000 — the price the police agent paid for four kilos of cocaine in the covert operation.
Devloo must repay the money within five years of his release from prison or he will spend another three years behind bars. Ong, who received two eight-year prison sentences to be served concurrently, will be deported to the Philippines on his release.

Devloo was a property developer and owner of Jerway Holdings Ltd. He was one of the pallbearers for Frank Nucci, a high-level cocaine dealer with ties to organized crime who was shot to death in Montreal in 2005. Ong and Devloo were taken into custody at the end of the sentencing hearing.
