• Conspiracy to Import/Export a Controlled Substance

Jose de Jesus Kratc-Usman

Wanted on Canada-wide warrant for conspiracy to import/export a controlled substance.

A sixteen month undercover operation was conducted in the greater Toronto area from July 1996 to October 1997. The case was a joint effort between the RCMP and Peel Regional Police. The operation culminated in the seizure of three hundred kilograms of cocaine valued at 90 million dollars. It was the largest seizure ever in the region of Peel. It severely disrupted a cell of Colombian based traffickers, three of whom have already pleaded guilty. Kratc-Usman was a high ranking representative of a cocaine organization in South America. He was in Canada to evaluate the Canadian operation and gave the final approval before the traffickers attempted to smuggle in the cocaine. The RCMP consider Kratc-Usman to be among the very upper echelon of international cocaine traffickers.
