Two men face an assortment of charges after illegal drugs and an imitation firearm were seized during a raid at a Rexdale pot shop.
Toronto Police say officers executed a search warrant at Starbuds Dispensary, near Albion Rd. and Hwy. 27, around 6 p.m. on Jan. 29.
Const. David Hopkinson revealed Saturday that the following items were seized:
– 82.58 grams of marijuana shatter with a street value of $4200.00
– 363.7 grams of marijuana with a street value of $3700.00
– 3 packs of marijuana cookies with a street value of $50.00
– 8 packs of marijuana gummies with a street value of $160.00
– 22 pills of marijuana resin with a street value of $220.00
– an undisclosed amount of an unknown white powder
– an MP5 BB sub-machine gun
– $211.00 in Canadian cash
Kevin McKnight, 31, and Steven Deocharan, 29, both of Toronto, are each charged with three counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking marijuana, three counts of possession of marijuana and one counts of possession of the proceeds of crime.
Their arrests come just days after two Toronto cops made headlines for allegedly eating marijuana edibles while guarding a dispensary after a raid near Eglinton Ave. W. and Black Creek Dr.
Sources said the cops got high, began hallucinating, wandered off and one of them called an off-duty colleague for help, which sparked a response from four west end divisions last weekend.
One of the officers was later found up in a tree.
Const. Vittorio Dominelli, a 10 year veteran, and Const. Jamie Young, who has been on the force for two years, were suspended with pay while Professional Standards investigates.
The accused in the Starbuds Dispensary raid are scheduled to appear in court at Old City Hall on March 9.
