Numerous people known to police were arrested, and charges are now being forwarded to Crown for approval including multiple counts of trafficking in a controlled substance and conspiracy to commit an indictable offence.

Police could not speak to how many people have been arrested as the investigation is ongoing, involving the Canadian Border Services Agency, and Delta police.

More to come.
