A 32-year-old Hamilton woman faces charges after police conducted a raid at Skip the Dealer marijuana dispensary at 438 Hwy. 8 in Stoney Creek on March 13.
Const. Jerome Stewart says the vice and drug unit executed a Controlled Drugs and Substances Act search warrant at the business — located in close proximity to a child daycare centre — after an investigation determined it had been operating as an illegal marijuana dispensary.
A search of the premise revealed a “large amount” of cannabis marijuana, cannabis resin and tetrahydrocannabinol-based products, he said.
The woman is charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking cannabis, possession for the purpose of trafficking cannabis resin and possession for the purpose of trafficking tetrahydrocannabinol.
Anyone with information about illegal drug trafficking is asked to contact police or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
