Police say they seized drugs with a street value of $40 million, making it one of the biggest meth seizures in Ontario's history.
At a news conference that took place on Thursday, police said that they seized raw methamphetamine and the chemicals that are used to make the drug in raids that they conducted at three different labs in July, according to CBC.
According to CTV, five Ontario residents ended up being arrested, and they are now facing numerous charges.
The police also said that seven search warrants were executed back in July at businesses and residences across the Greater Toronto Area, as well as two in the Warkworth and Campbellford areas, located in eastern Ontario.
According to National Post, police say that a total of 120 kilograms of pure meth was found, which is the equivalent of four million pills. Five vehicles and $81,000 in cash was also seized.
Police said that there are serious risks to the environment that are caused by the production of illegal drugs, such as toxic waste. Waste typically ends up being carelessly dumped, which can result in potential contamination of waterways and land that is nearby.
