York Regional Police say they’ve arrested eight people and dismantled what they describe as the largest meth production operation the force has ever investigated.

Police say the probe, dubbed Project Discard, took place over the past four months.

They say they arrested eight people and are still looking for a ninth.

They say investigators also dismantled an active lab producing meth and seized approximately five million dollars in drugs.

Police are holding a press conference in Aurora, Ont., on Friday morning to share more information about the investigation and its results.
