York police have charged a Vaughan man with drug-related offences and shut down a warehouse in Toronto that was allegedly being used to supply an illicit dispensary in the city with various cannabis products, including edibles.
According to Const. Andy Pattenden, the accused — a 42-year-old man from Vaughan — was under surveillance by York police, who suspected him of dealing various kinds of drugs in Vaughan.
Then, on Thursday, officers following the man allegedly watched him make a “suspicious transaction” at an industrial warehouse in the area of Keele Street and Steeles Avenue W. in Toronto.
When they arrested him that night, police found “business documentation” that led them to a cannabis paraphernalia shop in the heart of Kensington Market, Lit Paper and Glass. There, officers allegedly found a “fully-stock dispensary operating behind the front” of the shop.
The store has been shut down as police investigate.
