    Why aren’t the charged in this case named? With any other Police Service in Canada when you have a arrest and drug bust or crime this large the accused are named in the media, there’s something very strange going on down there in Kingston, when you’re protecting the accused this way.

    possibly a trap, waiting for someone ( people who they owed the money to ) to speak out about trying to find out who they arrested !
