The CFSEU began its sprawling, year-long investigation into street and mid-level drug dealers in July 2015, charging 43 suspects in June 2016, and seizing cocaine, fentanyl, an AR-15 rifle, meth, cash, and other weapons after a series of search warrants and traffic stops. 

A total of 29 people were arrested in police roundups in Fort St. John and Dawson Creek as part of the bust.

So far, 21 have either pleaded guilty or been found guilty, according to CFSEU. Five were either found not guilty, or had their charges stayed.

Of the 15 sentenced to date, 4,300 days of jail time has been handed out. Another six are still waiting to be sentenced.

Six other accused are either on trial, or awaiting trial.
