    Ten Arrested, Ten Sought In Huge GTA-Wide Pot Bust

    Friday January 26, 2007
    They ran their drug empire like a business. In fact, they ran some of it from a business.
    That's what Toronto Police allege 20 suspects were up to, after they dismantled a major marijuana grow-op and distribution network that involved almost 40 homes in the G.T.A.
    Cops from the local force and the R.C.M.P., along with reps from Peel and York Police, all banded together to make the busts, which resulted in ten arrests this week. Ten others are still being sought and warrants have been issued for them.
    Authorities have been working on "Project O'Clone" for a while. The seeds of this marijuana bust first sprouted in early 2006, and took almost a year to conclude.
    Detectives were able to pinpoint locations that were being used as grow houses and say they also found two companies that were allegedly involved in distributing the pot and laundering the money from the sales of the illegal crop.
    Cops allege the owners and employees of Can Tech Inc., which is located on Finch Avenue East, and Can Tech Distribution on McAdam Drive in Mississauga were involved in the massive operation.
    Twenty-five pounds of marijuana were seized along with a large amount of Canadian and American money, computers and grow-op equipment.
    Most of those charged are facing trafficking and possession accusations, while a few are also looking at money laundering and even theft of electricity allegations.
    The number of addresses raided by cops reads like a real estate shopping guide and spans the entire city, a fact police say shows how widespread the problem of marijuana grow-ops really is in the GTA.
    The long list also includes the number of plants investigators allege they recovered at each location:


    Albacore Crescent, 537 plants,
    Ashridge Drive, 463 plants,
    Bethany Leigh Drive, 297 plants,

  5. The author of the article should have changed this line:
    Authorities have been working on "Project O'Clone" for a while. The seeds of this marijuana bust first sprouted in early 2006, and took almost a year to conclude.
