Officers executed search warrants at addresses on Europe Boulevard and Mont-Bleu Boulevard on the morning of June 17, in an operation aimed at “ending a drug trafficking network operating in Gatineau,” police said Thursday.

Also, 233 unspecified pills, 360 smuggled cigarettes, drug packages and paraphernalia and two mobile phones were seized, police said.

A 48-year-old resident of Gatineau was arrested and released after questioning. Charges relating to drug possession for the purpose of human trafficking and possession of crime-acquired property must be filed with prosecutors.

A 58-year-old Gatineau man will also face charges against the Tobacco Tax Act.
