Watch: Project Embrace nets $1 million in drugs and cash

A joint police investigation in Alberta and B.C. netted about $1 million in cash, cocaine and meth.

Operation Embrace dismantled  an Edmonton group importing drugs from B.C. and distributing them in Alberta, particularly in the communities of Bonnyville, Lloydminster, St. Paul, Cold Lake, Little Smoky and Frog Lake.

More than six kilograms of cocaine, two kilograms of methamphetamine, almost $350,000 in cash, 18 kilograms of a cocaine buffing agent and a 2007 Volvo XC90 with a hidden compartment were seized.

Six people are facing drug trafficking and other charges, including an Edmonton man alleged to be at the centre of the operation.
