A mar­i­juana dis­pen­sary at 1532 Eglin­ton Ave. W. near Mar­lee

Av­enue was raided by Toronto Po­lice Ser­vice (TPS) on Jan. 18. Four em­ploy­ees work­ing at the dis­pen­sary were ar­rested and charged with pos­ses­sion of mar­i­juana, pro­ceeds of crime and drug traf­fick­ing of­fences. A TPS press re­lease states that 4.4 kilo­grams of mar­i­juana, 14 grams of hashish, 59 kilo­grams of ed­i­bles, seven grams of shat­ter (cannabis resin) and ap­prox­i­mately $20,000 in cash were seized dur­ing the raid.

A male sus­pect wanted by the Toronto Po­lice Ser­vice (TPS) in a sex­ual as­sault in­ves­ti­ga­tion is still at large. On Jan. 3, around 9:50 a.m., a 26-year-old wo­man was on board a TTC sub­way train head­ing north­bound be­tween St. Clair West sub­way sta­tion and Glen­cairn sub­way sta­tion when a male sus­pect al­legedly sat be­side the wo­man and sex­u­ally as­saulted her. Se­cu­rity im­ages of the sus­pect have been re­leased on the TPS web­site. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact po­lice.

A lo­cal syn­a­gogue near the Bathurst Street and War­wick Av­enue area was the scene of a rob­bery in late De­cem­ber, with two sus­pects still at large. On Dec. 25, a male and fe­male en­tered an area where coats were be­ing stored and stole mul­ti­ple items be­fore leav­ing the build­ing. The two were last seen en­ter­ing a 2010 to 2015 black Volk­swa­gen Golf be­fore leav­ing the area. Se­cu­rity im­ages of the two sus­pects, as well as the sus­pect ve­hi­cle, have been posted on the TPS web­site.
