18 people are in custody facing a total of 73 charges, in a drug bust that started in Durham Region.

Dubbed 'Project Bermuda', it featured 22 search warrants that were executed on Tuesday morning, stretching into places like Toronto, York Region, Pontypool and Bancroft.

In all, 270 thousand dollars in marijuana, cocaine and hashish was seized, along with 100 thousand dollars in cash. Police also seized vehicles and 8 firearms.

"We started this project back in February when we discovered some drugs and guns inside a house in Oshawa. As a result of that, it slowly grew from there, and we realized it was part of a network and started partnering with other police services nearby to put together a more robust and comprehensive team." said police spokesperson Dave Selby.

Police are still looking for another person they believe to be involved in the case, but as of right now, Selby says Project Bermuda is closed.
