The news release explained that the operation that led to seizure of $2.4 million in cash, dubbed as “Project Green Giant,” inspected alleged shipment of large quantities of marijuana from British Columbia to Toronto for distribution purpose.
Toronto police revealed to have also seized 205 kilograms of marijuana and three kilograms of hashish, and added that it dismantled a “large-hashish production lab” as well. It was explained that Police executed several search warrants at different locations across the GTA last Thursday, which included three safety deposit boxes at two financial institutions. Staff Insp.

It has been ongoing and it probably will continue, but we do our best to disrupt it and this is a significant disruption.”
