Seized Drugs and Cash

Four men appeared in court earlier today after an investigation into gang and drug activity in the Toronto area.

On Wednesday, April 8, 2020, officers from the Hamilton and Toronto Police Service executed search warrants at two Hamilton addresses. This was as a result of an investigation initiated by officers from the Toronto Police Service Integrated Gun & Gang Task Force into gang and drug activity.
