FINTRAC's financial intelligence recognized by the Hamilton Police Services


Recommended Posts

I am posting this mostly because I have lived in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada for the past decade plus. Please discuss.


FINTRAC’s financial intelligence was recognized by the Hamilton Police Service in relation to Project Odeon, a drug trafficking investigation that began after police discovered a clandestine laboratory during an overdose death investigation in November 2021 at a residence on Hamilton’s Mountain. As a result of the investigation, 12 individuals have been charged and there are 48 criminal charges to date which include possession for the purpose of trafficking, production of substance, proceeds of crime, firearm possession and conspiracy to commit an indictable offence. The police also seized a significant amount of fentanyl and over $350,000 of seized proceeds, including cars, jewelry, furniture and cash.

With the financial transaction reports received from Canadian businesses across the country, FINTRAC is providing valuable assistance to law enforcement and national security investigations.
