Sean Demchuk, last suspect in 'Project Distress' arrested
The last of 14 suspects wanted in a massive police operation dubbed 'Project Distress' has been arrested.
- Winnipeg teacher's assistant, property developer among suspects in drug raids
- Transcona council candidate Ray Ulasy's home raided in RCMP drug seizure
The Manitoba Integrated Organized Crime Task Force, made up of the Winnipeg Police Service, RCMP and Brandon Police Service carried out a number of raids earlier this month targeting high-level drug trafficking and organized crime in Manitoba, Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia.
Geraldine Demchuk told CBC police used battering rams as they barged into her home at 9:15 a.m. on Wednesday last week.
Police were looking for her son, Sean, but she told them he wasn't there and never lived there.
Police said Demchuk was arrested this week without incident in Hamilton, Ontario.
