Over 300 charges have been laid for those involved in Project Traveller.

Nine arrests were made in Windsor as part of the drugs and guns raids in cooperation with Toronto police and other agencies. Those people have been transported to a Toronto jail, allegedly involved in the Dixon Bloods, a Toronto gang.

Toronto police are expected to release the names of those taken into custody in the 11 Windsor raids.

Neighbours in the 1000 block of Bruce Avenue, who didn't want to be named, told CTV News six Toronto police officers raided a nearby home Thurs morning. They came out carrying one white box of evidence.

"We go into the houses, there's different property, pieces of identification, cellphones, documents, drug paraphernalia," says Toronto police Staff Superintendent Jim Ramer.

Toronto police say 70 per cent of guns coming into Canada are from the United States and those seized in project traveller were smuggled in from stateside.

“It shows the importance of different law agencies working together and importance of investing in them," says Windsor West NDP MP Brian Masse.

Though the suspects were not arrested at the border, Masse says illegal goods could infiltrate through.

He blames sweeping cuts to border services including inspectors and sniffer dogs resulting in an easy gateway for future drugs and guns.

“The government has decided to slash these very resources that have led to successful operations, in this case very extensive," says Masse.

Legitimate trade across the border will also remain at the status quo, so long as security is properly enforced says University of Windsor professor Bill Anderson.

"You realize what's at stake and when you can stamp out these networks, then maybe in the future we can move the legitimate goods across the border a lot easier," says Anderson.

The Windsor raids Thursday morning took place on Riverside Drive East, Ouellette Avenue, Central Avenue, Labour Crescent, Scarsdale, Partington, Raymo, University Avenue West and Stoney Brook Crescent.
