Ninety officers from the SQ, Montreal police, RCMP and regional police executed raids on 13 homes and nine vehicles.

Police in and around Montreal say they dealt a major blow to organized crime, seizing a half kilo of cocaine, 17,000 pills and $460,000 in cash during a series of raids Wednesday.

The raids, which yielded no arrests, are part of a continuing investigation into a narcotics ring linked to the Hells Angels.

“The goal wasn’t to get arrests,” said Sgt. Claude Denis, of the Sûreté du Québec. “This was about hitting their operations.”
