RCMP NEWS RELEASE

*****************************
Greater Sudbury area drug trafficking operation disrupted

SUDBURY - As a result of a joint forces investigation, dubbed project 'OCLASS', the Sudbury Detachment of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the Greater Sudbury Police Service and the Ontario Provincial Police (Organized Crime Enforcement Branch) have disrupted a cocaine trafficking operation and seized a significant quantity of cocaine destined for the Greater Sudbury Area.

On November 26, police stopped a vehicle on Highway 69 near French River.

Upon searching the vehicle, investigators found over one kilogram of cocaine, a restricted weapon and other items.

The driver of the vehicle, Kyle Aulenback (31) of Greater Sudbury, was arrested at the scene.

As a result of this investigation, officers have seized:

  • 1,024 grams of cocaine
  • One set of brass knuckles
  • One extendable baton
  • $315 in Canadian currency
  • Seven Hell's Angels support shirts
  • One vehicle

Kyle Aulenback has been released under a recognizance of bail and scheduled to attend Sudbury Courthouse on January 18, 2014.

He has been charged with:

  • Trafficking cocaine
  • Possession for the purpose of trafficking cocaine
  • Possession of property obtained by crime (Canadian currency)

The investigation team would like to thank York Regional Police for their assistance in this file.

"Together with our partners, we are committed to ensure that our communities are safe places to live, work and raise our families," said Supt Guy Rook (North East District Commander - Ontario RCMP). 

He added: "Each and every arrest, seizure and investigation sends a clear message and makes a difference."

Pretty sad that all a joint forces investigation came up with was this.
Although it's good to get it off the street, they could never justify it if they told the public how much this investigation set the tax payers back.

Each time they report something like this they should also have to release the cost of the particular investigation for the public to see.

Trust me, RCMP investigated my bf and I for 2 years, raided us, and found wayyyyy more than this guy had. But you know what? All the charges were withdrawn cause of the crown attorney and RCMP had lack of evidence. Funny that they don't put that in the paper eh ? Also funny is the amount of taxpayer money wasted on the investigation just so the police/RCMP can get their name in the paper lol they will never get a conviction around here cause as soon as they get a lil bit of info, they jump and make mistakes :) thank god cause they have laws they have to follow too. Anyway just saying this guy will probably get off cause a technicality or lack of evidence.
