During the investigation, police seized more than two kilograms of cocaine and uncovered what it called “sophisticated concealment methods which enabled the cocaine shipments to cross international borders.”
Several police agencies executed search warrants in Leamington on Thursday as part of the investigation.
Three Leamington men, ages 29, 48 and 56, have been charged.
The first two were charged with conspiracy to traffic cocaine. All three were charged with conspiracy to kidnap.
Officers with the RCMP, CBSA, OPP and the Chatham-Kent police worked in tandem on the investigation, according to a media release from the RCMP.
