6 men face dozens of charges after street crime bust
7 kilograms of cocaine, marijuana, oxycodone, 2 handguns, nearly $35K in cash seized by police
Six people are facing dozens of charges after a six-month street gang investigation that netted about seven kilograms of powder cocaine, as well as marijuana, oxycodone pills and two handguns.
The combined street-value estimate of the drugs is about $700,000. Police also seized nearly $35,000 in Canadian currency.
Ottawa police led the investigation into Crips gang activity, dubbed Project Apache, with help from police in Gatineau and Toronto. The project's name comes from the street nickname of one of the charged suspects.
Several warrants were executed between Friday and Monday.
The two seized handguns are a .45-calibre Llama Max and a Browning 9-mm, as well as ammunition.
Those charged are:
- Adil Omer, 29, of Ottawa.
- Abdullahi Egal, 21, of Ottawa.
- Abdirahman Hussein, 27, of Gatineau.
- Omar Alhamad, 21, of Ottawa.
- Jerome Nahulan, 21, of Ottawa.
- Mohammed Nour, 20, of Ottawa.
