A Mississauga man was sentenced to more than a decade in prison after being nabbed by Halton police last year in Project Lynx.

Project Lynx was a seven month investigation that targeted a highly organized and sophisticated drug network involved with drug trafficking, importing and money laundering.

In April 2021, the HRPS announced seven arrests and more than 40 charges in connection with this investigation.

On Jan. 20, Ajmer Singh, 45, of Mississauga received a sentence of 13 years and 222 days for one count of possession for the purpose of trafficking fentanyl. Singh also received a 10 year sentence, to be served concurrently, on two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking cocaine.

“Mr. Singh’s sentencing sends a strong message that those who put some of our most vulnerable community members at risk will be held accountable,” said Halton Police Services deputy chief of Regional Operations Jeff Hill.

“This type of activity will never be tolerated in our community and our members will remain relentless in battling the ongoing opioid crisis and bringing those involved in trafficking to prosecution.”

In addition to these sentences, the courts also ordered the forfeiture of $727,883 cash, a vehicle used in the commission of the offences and several pieces of high-end jewelry.

Several people arrested in Project Lynx are still facing charges.
