Project “FLURRY” results in 21 Arrests related to street level drug trafficking


(Ottawa)— During the months of April to June 2017, the Ottawa Police Service Street Crime Unit conducted Project “FLURRY” targeting street level drug dealers in the Byward Market and downtown core.

Twenty-one (21) people, including 3 youths, have been arrested and charged. A variety of drugs were being sold including cocaine, amphetamines, heroin and opioid pills. Analysis is still pending on many of the drugs seized.

“Many of those arrested are coming in to the downtown core to prey on some of the most vulnerable people in our community and profit on their addictions.” said S/Sgt Rick Carey of the Ottawa Police Service Drug and Street Crime Units. “We will continue to work hard to keep all who live, work and play in the city safe from this type of crime that always has the potential to lead to violence.”

As of July 6th, 37 Controlled Drug Substance Act (CDSA) charges and 43 Criminal Code charges have been laid against those arrested.
