All accused are scheduled to appear at the Sault Ste. Marie Courthouse on Monday August 9, 2021.

The investigation is continuing and no further information will be disclosed at this time.

The RCMP would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Canada Border Services Agency for their contribution and assistance throughout the course of this investigation.
