Espionage suspect Cameron Ortis linked to Vincent Ramos

The investigation into Cameron Ortis was an offshoot of an FBI probe into the activities of Vincent Ramos, a B.C. man who was later convicted of helping the flow of drugs around the world by supplying drug traffickers with encrypted phones.

A search of one of Ramos’s devices revealed that an RCMP employee had tried to sell information to him.
Vincent Ramos pleaded guilty to using his Phantom Secure devices to assist in the distribution of drugs and was sentenced to 9 years in jail in May 2019.

Cameron Ortis, 47, is accused of violating Canada’s secrecy laws dating back to 2015.
