Three people are facing drug charges following the seizure of more than $3 million worth of drugs and equipment – including cocaine, heroin and ecstasy – from a home in Vaughan.
Two days after arresting a suspect carrying more than three kilograms of cocaine in front of a home on Zenith Avenue on Aug. 2, York Regional Police executed a search warrant at the home.
They found more than 18 kilograms of cocaine worth more than $1.5 million, three kilograms of marijuana, 1.5 kilograms of heroin, 700 ecstasy pills, a kilogram of methamphetamine, 11 grams of fentanyl and more than five litres of liquid ketamine. Investigators also seized cocaine presses, logo plates and packaging materials.
Police began investigating the residents in July on suspicion of drug trafficking. Lee Nguyen, 26, of Toronto, has been charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking. Dat Nguyen, 25, of Vaughan was charged with production of a controlled substance and Anne Lu, 32, also of Vaughan, was charged with possession of proceeds of crime.
The investigation continues. Anyone with information is asked to contact the #4 District Criminal Investigations Bureau at 1-866-876-5423, ext. 7441, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-tips, or leave an anonymous tip online at www.1800222tips.com.
