The Toronto Police Service announced they have again raided a cannabis dispensary at 33 Kensington Ave. Five arrests were made and cannabis and cash were seized.
On Tuesday, December 5, 2017, at approximately 6:30 p.m., officers executed a search warrant at the Toronto Dispensary at 33 Kensington Avenue. It is alleged that during the execution of the search warrant, officers seized 127.67 grams of shatter, 3,204.76 grams (3.2 kg) of loose marijuana, 20,232.66 grams (20.23 kg) ‘marihuana derived products’ and $7,078 Canadian currency.
Five people were charged with Possession of a Schedule II Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking, Possession of a Schedule II Substance and Possession of Proceeds of Property Obtained by Crime.
This is at least the second time TPS have raided a dispensary at this location. In July of this year, police arrested six and seized products and cash, as well. The Toronto Dispensary is the business currently listed at this location.
Toronto Police Services spokesperson Mark Pugash has said they will continue to raid dispensaries, largely based on either complaints from the community or perhaps when evidence comes up in a related raid.
