$1M of pot seized at Toronto pizzeria
A downtown Toronto pizzeria popular with university and high school students has been shut down after a police search uncovered a $1 million of marijuana on the premises.
Police allege a 57-year-old man sold marijuana at Pizza Gigi, located at Harbord and Bathurst streets near Central Technical School and the University of Toronto campus.
An early Monday raid of the eatery turned up marijuana, Oxycontin, Oxycocet, ecstasy, a small amount of crack cocaine and $8,000 in cash, police said in a release.
The 57-year-old man faces one marijuana trafficking charge and 14 other drug possession charges. The Toronto Star reported he is the owner of Pizza Gigi.
He was scheduled to appear in court Monday morning.
