These recent arrests follow a series of nearly two dozen raids conducted by Montreal police on November 23, 2022, in both Quebec and Ontario. The operation, which involved the collaboration of over 300 police officers and enlisted the support of the Sûreté du Québec and Ontario Provincial Police, saw 22 warrants carried out across Montreal, Trois-Rivières, Lanaudière, the Laurentians, Hastings County, and Napanee, Ontario.

During these raids, law enforcement agencies apprehended a total of 13 suspects and seized nearly one million methamphetamine pills. Additionally, they confiscated equipment used in drug production, various chemicals, electric stun pistols, knives, and thousands of dollars in cash. At the time of this operation, authorities had already indicated that further arrests were imminent.
