In April 2014, the Halton Regional Police Service Drug, Gun and Gang Unit commenced an investigation into a group involved with trafficking cocaine and marihuana. The investigation revealed the network was well entrenched in the drug culture in Halton Region, the City of Hamilton and the City of Toronto.

Modern day technology and counter-detection techniques deployed by this group presented significant obstacles to the investigative team. However, investigators were able to unravel the layers to this sophisticated drug trafficking operation. As a result, police identified the parties involved, their respective roles, drug stash locations and concealment methods.

On November 24, 2014, the HRPS Drug, Gun and Gang Unit assisted by the Waterloo Regional Police Service, Peel Regional Police Service, Niagara Regional Police Service, Hamilton Police Service, Durham Regional Police Service and the Ontario Provincial Police Service executed 15 search warrants throughout Hamilton, Halton and Toronto.

Police arrested and charged 15 people, disrupting and possibly dismantling this drug trafficking network. Police seized the following evidence:

2.5 kilograms of cocaine
105 pounds of marihuana
1 kilogram of cannabis resin
2 semi automatic handguns and ammunition
4 vehicles as offence related property

Frank GELENYI, 30 yrs, from Oakville was charged with the following offences
• Breach of Recognizance (currently on outstanding firearms charges from 2012)
• Unlawful Possession of Firearm
• Knowingly in Possession of an Unauthorized Firearm
