Carfentanil hits Tennessee, Massachusetts and Nova Scotia

Carfentanil has made its way to Tennessee in the last three weeks. Recently an officer in Ohio almost died just from touching carfentanil, so the Tennessee Highway Patrol said their officers are no longer field testing drugs. THP officers are now wearing gloves and protective clothing to stay safe. They have eight interdiction drug teams across the state, and they recently confiscated 20 pounds of Fentanyl.

"This is a different ball game altogether. If you take something and don't know what it is, you could be dead in one minute." So far the TBI said they have tested 10 samples of carfentanil in Tennessee.
Patrolman Chris Green was called in as backup in East Liverpool, Ohio. Back at the police station later that evening, Green noticed some bits of the powdery white substance on his uniform. He wiped it off with his bare hands. As his fellow cops looked on stunned, Green collapsed. Green’s fellow cops gave him a dose of Narcan in nasal spray form and took him to the hospital, where doctors were forced to administer three more doses.
Drug overdoses killed a record 3,050 people in Ohio in 2015, and 1,155 of those deaths were linked to fentanyl, more than twice as many as the previous year.

The great Canadian BBQ Scam

The great Canadian barbecue scam involves Jefferey Wilson, a 42-year-old Toronto man. Wilson is accused of having visited several Home Depot stores around the Toronto area beginning in May, where he would remove the price tag from an el cheapo Weber barbecue (retail $219.19) and affix it to the Genesis II LX S-440 NG SS, a “high performance” grilling rig amped up stupid by three burners and 43,500 BTUs worth of pure cooking power. The Genesis retails for $1,999.

Wilson would then use a “fraudulently” obtained Home Depot gift card to purchase the deluxe barbecue for the bargain price — before selling it to the highest bidder on classified ad websites. He has been charged with 18 counts of fraud under $5,000.

IS - Red Scorpions busted dealing carfentanil in Red Deer

Police have confirmed that drugs seized in Red Deer in March were a mixture of carfentanil, fentanyl and caffeine, making this the first known seizure of carfentanil in the Red Deer area. Kim Proctor of the Independent Soldiers, Steven Herman of the Red Scorpions, Trina Boudreau-Pritchard and Catherine Nicole Campbell, were arrested and charged as a result.
“Drug dealers don’t care about your health – they’re looking for the biggest profit and they’re working in a system that is run by organized crime,” said Schultz. “Are these really the people you want to trust your life with?

“It’s a drug that is non-discriminating, so if you think it can’t happen to you, you are wrong. If you think that trying it once won’t do anything, you’re wrong. "

"Selling Fentanyl is selling death by a different name"

Luis Manuel Charchabal, 53, is behind bars after Miami-Dade police found him in possession of 2.5 kilograms of heroin and Fentanyl. His arrest is the result of a long-term narcotics investigation. Charchabal is a convicted felon and was booked into the Miami-Dade County jail. He is being charged with three counts of illegal trafficking in heroin and three counts of possession of Fentanyl with intent to deliver.

Fentanyl is Florida's biggest killer. More people died in Florida from a fentantyl overdose during the first half of 2016 than ever before. Fentanyl killed more than 700 people between January and June 2016 — nearly the same as it did in all of 2015.

Fentanyl killed more people than any other drug, and almost twice as many as heroin.

Salvatore Scoppa targeted by police in murder investigation

Salvatore Scoppa, a figurehead of the Montreal mafia, is suspected of knowing much about the double murder of Daniel Pierre and Mohamed Qazi Ali, two men also linked to organized crime. The two men disappeared in Blainville on September 25 and 26, 2013. Police believe they were liquidated by the mafia.
Police now believe their bodies were cut to pieces and they will never be found, but now they know who committed the crime and who commissioned it. It is for this reason that Scoppa and his entourage have been targeted by a series of searches in recent months. The home of Scoppa was visited by investigators on January 17th.

A member of an organization that sold cocaine on behalf of the Scoppa organization decided to work for the police. The informer is alleged to have witnessed the double murder of Pierre, 45, and Qazi Ali, 30. The narco-trafficker began to panic at the end of September 2016. He had taken refuge in Mexico with his wife, fearing for his life because the organization of Scoppa was seeking revenge for the disappearance of five kilos of cocaine. (worth $ 250,000+)

Leonardo Rizzuto and Stefano Sollecito
The informer decided to call the Sûreté du Québec saying that he was ready to "sell" Scoppa, who was then working under orders of Stefano Sollecito. When the couple returned to Quebec on October 30, 2016, heavily armed police from the Sûreté du Québec were waiting for them. The informer has changed his identity and is kept by the Witness Protection Service and monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week by police. No charges have been laid against Scoppa at this time.

3 plead guilty to drug charges in Project Mastiff

José McCarthy, 40, pleaded guilty to four charges related to Project Mastiff, an investigation that produced the arrests of four dozen people in November 2015, including Salvatore Cazzetta, 62, a leader among the Hells Angels in Quebec.

François Langlois, 43, and Claude Ouellette, 43 also pled guilty to a number of counts including conspiracy charges, drug trafficking and handling the proceeds of crime. Salvatore Cazzetta faces three charges in connection with Project Mastiff. He has entered a not-guilty plea to all charges and has filed a motion seeking to have a separate trial.
McCarthy likely faces an overall prison term of 58 months less time served as a result of a joint recommendation in September.

Sentencing in murder of Mafioso Salvatore Montagna delayed AGAIN

The six men who pleaded guilty to a murder conspiracy charge more than a year ago, on March 30, 2016, and have not had a sentencing hearing since. On Monday, a Superior Court Justice was told exactly the same thing he was told by lawyers Feb. 22. Lawyers from both sides plan to present joint recommendations on sentences for all six men. The problem, repeated twice, was that Pietro Magistrale, 65, wants to have charges he faces at another courthouse transferred to Laval so they can become part of the sentence he receives. There is no explanation as to why one courthouse was unable to transfer Magistrale’s file to the Laval courthouse over the past four months.
The five other men are: Vittorio Mirarchi, 39, Calogero Milioto, 46, Steven Fracas, 32, Jack Simpson, 75, Steven D’Addario, 39. They pleaded guilty to being part of a conspiracy to kill Montagna, who was fatally shot on Nov. 24, 2011. Their sentence hearing will now, apparently, be in September. Raynald Desjardins, 63, the leader of the plot, was sentenced to an overall prison term of 14 years in December.

HA John Lockhart charged with attempted murder of police officer

36-year-old John Lockhart's arrest began when someone on a black motorcycle shot through the back window of a passing SUV. An hour later, a Milliken police officer spotted a motorcycle that matched the description and attempted to pull it over, but the driver sped away. The officer heard what she thought was the sound of the motorcycle backfiring, but later found a bullet in the front grill of her patrol car.

Greeley officers spotted the motorcycle speeding through the city, reaching 100 mph.
Investigators used surveillance footage from nearby businesses and Lockart's Facebook page to identify him as the driver and learn he is associated with the Hell's Angels Nomads chapter based in LaSalle, which is just south of Greeley. Officers arrested Lockhart after searching his home.

He has been charged with attempted first-degree murder of a peace officer, attempted first-degree murder, two counts of vehicular eluding and illegal discharge of a firearm. He is currently held on a $1 million bond.

Five plead guilty in plot to murder Rizzuto rivals

Top row: Edrick Antoine, Léonard Faustin Étienne, Olivier Gay. Second row: Stanley Minuty, Kevin Tate.
Gaétan Gosselin was given a gift of one extra day of life because a child happened to pass his home at the exact moment cold-blooded killers were prepared to shoot him. Five men with ties to a Montreal street gang called Unit 44 were charged with the murder of Raynald Desjardins’s business partner and close friend.

One of the five, Olivier Gay, 34, also pleaded to being part of a conspiracy to murder Vincenzo Scuderi, 49, who was killed nine days after Gosselin. Scuderi was a close lieutenant of Giuseppe (Ponytail) De Vito.

Gaétan Gosselin
Smart phones seized in the investigation revealed that after the hit was called off, Gay sent a text message to Tate saying: “I scrapped it bro. There was a man with his child passing by at the same moment.”

“It was perfect. It was just the kid who fucked the ambience. We will redo it in the same way, the same place, the same location so it will work,” Tate wrote. Gosselin was killed the following night, after arriving home from a grocery store. Gay texted: “I have begun to have a taste for this.”
