Police have made scores of arrests against an alleged nationwide narcotics trafficking ring linked to organized crime that made an estimated $50 million in only six months.
Police in Quebec say they’ve arrested 103 people so far in different parts of the country — including two alleged ringleaders: one in B.C. tied to the Hells Angels and one linked to Montreal’s infamous West End Gang.
Police describe the ring as a well-organized criminal consortium including the Hells Angels as well as elements of the Italian and Irish Mafia.

The accused face a variety of charges including drug trafficking, conspiracy and gangsterism.
