  • Print

RCMP have made another arrest in relation to Project Describe.

Project Describe is a crackdown on cocaine trafficking in The Pas and Opaskwayak Cree Nation. The Pas RCMP has charged 31 people with cocaine-trafficking offences since early last year.

On Monday, Matthew Kyle Ost, 21, of Winnipeg turned himself into police. He has been released on a recognizance and is scheduled to appear in court at a later date.

On May 4 and May 5, RCMP officers in The Pas and Opaskwayak Cree Nation made multiple arrests in Project Describe, arresting nine people from those communities. They face drug-trafficking charges.

"Our concentrated efforts to wipe out drug trafficking in Manitoba communities will continue," said RCMP Chief Supt. Scott Kolody in a press release. "Each and every arrest, project, seizure or investigation sends a message and makes a difference."
