This is dedicated to Travis Holappa who was kidnapped, tortured and murdered on July 25, 2004 in Northern Minnesota. This was all due to meth. I am Travis' mother and I wish to make this devastation turn into a better thing by educating and exposing the truth about meth, the dangers, and the deadly consequences it brings about to individuals and communities.

I want to do what I can to educate people about what is going on around the world with the meth problem. I want people to know about it BEFORE they even get the idea to want to try it. It is a dangerous drug and will ruin your life as well as all those who love you. I am on a mission on behalf of my only son, Travis.

Whitby couple caught up in $200,000 drug bust (Toronto, Ontario, CANADA)

Crystal meth, ecstasy among drugs seized

DURHAM -- A Whitby couple are among six people charged in a drug bust that saw police seize an estimated $200,000 worth of narcotics, including marijuana, ecstasy and crystal methamphetamine.

The Durham suspects were arrested along with others in York Region last Wednesday. Durham Regional Police drug and gang enforcement officers teamed with cops from York in an investigation that focused on crystal meth and led to the large seizure during morning raids in Whitby, Oshawa, Stouffville and Markham.

Among the drugs seized were thousands of ecstasy pills dumped into a toilet by a suspect as police arrived at a York location. The pills wouldn’t flush down and were recovered by officers, police said.

Six people are facing numerous charges as a result of the seizure of more than 412 grams of meth worth $41,000; almost 3 kg of ecstasy valued at nearly $146,000; 244 grams of cannabis resin; and 3 kg of marijuana worth a combined $20,000, police said.

Valerie Kyle, 30, of Vista Beach Court in Whitby is charged with possession of a controlled substance in connection with the seizure of crystal meth. Douglas Kyle, 34, also of Vista Beach Court, faces four counts of possession, relating to meth, ecstasy, cannabis resin and marijuana.

Four people from York Region have also been charged.
