Detective Sergeant Brett Nicol announced the early morning operation in a video on the police service’s YouTube channel.

He says it’s the result of a year-long investigation dubbed Project Kronic into a street gang known as the Driftwood Crips and their criminal associates.

Police allege the Driftwood Crips is a criminal organization with cells that have infiltrated various communities in Ontario, including Toronto and Sudbury, as well as communities in Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia.

A number police services across Ontario participated in Project Kronic.
