Largest meth bust in N.L. history

Assault rifles, shotguns, cocaine, meth and cash was laid out on tables at RCMP headquarters in St. John's. It was dubbed Project Blowfish and resulted in two arrests. 3 kg of cocaine and 350 grams of meth was seized along with many other drugs.
Project Blowfish kicked off when RCMP intercepted three kilograms of cocaine en route from Montreal to St. John's. The cocaine is packaged and stamped with luxury brand logos, like “Gucci.”

Cops found six firearms, including a loaded tactical shotgun, two pump-action shotguns, a .22 calibre rifle and two handguns. Police also seized a motorcycle, an SUV, a high end sports car, jewelry and $90,600 in cash.
