Winnipeg police make high-level arrests, seize drugs and ATM machines

WINNIPEG - Winnipeg police say they have arrested some of the city's highest-level drug traffickers.

The police operation, dubbed Project Sideshow, stretched nearly two years.

Officers have arrested 14 people in Manitoba and British Columbia.

Arrest warrants have been issued for five others.

Police say they tracked various drugs, including cocaine worth at least $5 million on the street, and more than $4 million in cash from drug sales.

Investigators say they also uncovered evidence that drug money was being laundered through privately-owned ATM machines in Winnipeg businesses.
