Nine men are facing charges after a two-month investigation targeting organized crime in Regina.

The investigation, dubbed "Project Shred," resulted in the arrests of nine men between the ages of 18 and 40, including several members of the Native Syndicate street gang.

Police say they seized a gun, ammunition, replica firearms, a machete, cash and drugs, including fentanyl, cocaine, methamphetamine, morphine and marijuana.

The nine accused appeared in court on a total of 20 charges Monday morning. Thirty-five-year-old Jeremy John Arnold of Regina faces seven charges, including instructing the commission of a criminal offence for a criminal organization.

The other eight men, whose names have not been released, are each charged with participating in a criminal organization.
