By mid-morning WEdnesday, ten searches were planned in six residential and commercial locations and in four vehicles.
The North Shore Regional Joint Task Force explains that these searches are the result of an investigation that began last January; they are mobilizing more than 30 police officers from different units of the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) and the Terrebonne and L’Assomption/Saint-Sulpice police departments.

No arrests have been announced by authorities.
The investigation related to these searches is ongoing.
