KINGSTON, Ont. – A multi-force police operation seized more than $14 million worth of hashish from a transport truck at a Mallorytown, Ont. gas station in early October.
The hashish – weighing 572 kilograms in all, was believed to be en route from Toronto to Montreal.
The truck carrying it was eastbound on Hwy 401, police say.
The police made the bust as the truck was stopped at the Mallorytown Esso, west of Brockville, Ont.
The hashish was in an aluminum box in the back of a pickup truck that had been loaded on the tractor-trailer.
Most of the blocks of hashish had gold trademarks on them, which could link them to a specific gang.
The paper said Owen Anthony Smith, 41, of Scarborough and Kenneth Wayne Wood, 47, of Maynooth are charged with possession of hashish for the purpose of trafficking. n
