Calgary – The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) seized a cache of classic and exotic cars and cocaine Tuesday as part of a two-year investigation into money laundering, illegal gambling, tax evasion, and drug trafficking. Among the vehicles seized were two Porches, a 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1, two Lamborghinis, a BMW and a Hummer.

In addition to the cars the Mounties confiscated four homes, 4.5 kilograms of cocaine, one business and two banks accounts. The net value of the seized property is valued in the millions. Seven persons were arrested and charges are pending in the case. Police were first tipped off to the crime spree after casino employees reported the group’s suspicious deposit activity. RCMP say it could be months before charges are brought because of the complexity of the case. Until then, RCMP will most likely treat the cars like their own.
