Three Charged After Pot Dispensary Raid in Wilson Heights

Police raid another dispensary in Toronto

Police say they executed a search warrant at Canna Club on Wilson Ave. on Wednesday.

The police made a statement after news of government-owned dispensaries came out. They stated that dispensaries will be shut down and raided before summer of 2018. Since then a raid has happened almost every week. However, several locations have decided to stay open as part of the battle for privately owned businesses.

On Wednesday, the 32/33 Division Toronto Police executed a raid in Wilson Heights. In previous raids, police have said that raids happen to do public complaints.

The Raid

Police executed a search warrant at Canna Club on Wilson Ave. at approximately 2:50 p.m. After conducting a full search Wednesday afternoon, the police seized 1.4 kg of marijuana leaves. In addition, police found 301.8 g of marijuana oil, and $1,330 cash.
