WINDSOR, Ont. - At least 10 people are facing charges after a year-long investigation into an alleged gun-smuggling ring.
Ontario Provincial Police say they worked with officers in Windsor, Ont., as well as officials in the United States over the course of the probe dubbed Project Kirby.
Police allege guns were being illegally brought into Ontario across the border with Michigan.
During the course of the investigation, police say they seized seven handguns and one Tech-9 machine gun.
They also found drugs, cash and cars while searching properties in Windsor and London, Ont.
Police have laid 111 charges against 10 people and are still searching for two more who are still at large.
