Three people have been arrested and charged after an investigation into an illegal cannabis dispensary.

Police say that earlier this month, an investigation was launched into an illegal cannabis dispensary located in the 4600 block of Tecumseh Road East.

Investigators applied for and were granted judicial authorization to search the involved business.

On Thursday, October 10th, 2019, at approximately 12:30pm, the Provincial Joint Forces Cannabis Enforcement Team, including officers from the Windsor Police Service Criminal Intelligence Unit, executed the warrant.

Three suspects were located at the business and arrested without incident.

A quantity of cannabis products and Canadian currency was located and seized.

An 18-year-old female, 19-year-old male, and 42-year-old male, all from Windsor, are charged with possession for the purpose of selling – Federal Cannabis Act.

Windsor Police would like to remind the public that the illegal sale of cannabis will continue to be investigated. There are no legal cannabis stores operating in the City of Windsor as of this date, and the only legal way to purchase cannabis products is through the online Ontario Cannabis store or a licenced brick and mortar store.

Police also say that landlords may be charged under the Provincial Cannabis Act if they are found to be complicit with the person(s) operating an illegal cannabis store on their property.
