Seen from the air by the TVA helicopter, this garage turned into a lab in Chertsey was impossible to see from the road.

Impossible to see from the road, the garage searched in Chertsey, converted into a laboratory, was used to supply the Greater Montreal area as well as several criminal organizations, including bikers. Chertsey is a small town north of the metropolis.

It was information received from the public a few weeks ago that allowed the officers of the National Crime Squad to stop the activities of this network.

“The search has been suspended for the time being and will resume [today]. It should also be spread over several days. It’s a lot of work because there are many health risks for deployed officers because of the products that are there, “said Stéphane Tremblay, spokesperson for the Sûreté du Québec (SQ).

According to a report that is expected to increase, 1.7 million tablets have already been seized. We also got $ 100,000 in cash, 4 kg of cocaine and 14 kg of pure methamphetamine.

Head head

Tommy Rent

Three individuals were arrested Thursday, but the alleged head is still off.

According to our information, this is Tommy Loyer, 32, from Sainte-Béatrix, north of Montreal. He has a history of production and possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking and possession of a prohibited firearm. In 2013, he was sentenced to 18 months in prison and a two-year probation.

Loyer also has links to criminal bikers, according to our sources. He owns the Sainte-Béatrix Golf Club, according to what has been learned about the Business Register.

The Sûreté du Québec, however, refuses to confirm that Rent is the main suspect.

In all, nine locations were searched by police officers, including the Chertsey production site. Other targeted locations are Sainte-Béatrix, Saint-Félix-de-Valois, Saint-Charles-Borromée and Laval.
