SIX NATIONS — Police say a man of middle eastern descent who was working in an illegal cannabis dispensary on Townline Road was arrested and is now facing drugs and weapons charges.
On May 13, Six Nations Police attended the store and seized illegal dried cannabis, illegal edible cannabis product that were packaged to look like Doritos, Chips Ahoy Cookies and Skittles — along with vape products and a large brick of illegal hashish.
Police also seized an illegal taser and a replica black BB handgun.
Paramvir Singh Sekhon, 28, of Mississauga was arrested on site and is charged with possessing a prohibited weapon, distributing illegal cannabis, possession for the purpose of distributing cannabis and possession for the purpose of selling cannabis.
He will appear in court on July 15.
Police did not announce if the property owner would face charges in this instance. In other illegal cannabis dispensary raids since the implementation of the Cannabis Act, Six Nations Police have levied charges against the property owner where the dispensary is located.
SNP say the investigation into this illegal dispensary is continuing and say further charges are pending.
This is the second illegal cannabis dispensary this month to be found selling illegal cannabis products that are packaged to look like children’s candy. In a previous investigation, police seized cannabis edibles marketed to look like chocolate chip cookies and breakfast cereal — along with cocaine residue and psilocybin mushroom products, an illicit psychedelic drug currently prohibited in Canada. Three Six Nations members are facing charges in that investigation, including the property owner.
