CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Three men have been arrested after a 10-month long international drug investigation.

Officers from the Cincinnati Police Central Vice Control Section's Mid-Level Drug Unit have been working with other regional law enforcement agencies, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police since July 2008 to disrupt an international organization responsible for supplying "designer drugs" to Cincinnati and surrounding areas.

In July 2008, officals executed a search warrant in Cheviot and recovered 159 doses of Ectasty and 14.73 grams of Ketamine. Further investigation led to the supply source in Green County, Ohio.  

The local investigators cooperated with officers from the Green County Agencies for Combined Enforcement (ACE) to conduct a controlled purchase of 100 Ecstasy pills, and that purchase led to a search warrant at a Green County residence where officers arrested one person and seized 2417 Ecstasy pills and more than $10,000 in U.S. currency.  

Following the supply line led to Toronto, Canada.  As a result of the combined investigation, officials conducted a covert operation in Toronto leading to the delivery of 10,000 Ecstasy pills and one pound of Ketamine powder. 

Three Canadian nationals, Tyler Brendan Cochrane, 26, Felix Raing Tue, 25, and Vinsam Ly, 28, were arrested and an international organization that had supplied dangerous drugs was dismantled.
