Dispensary Task Force Hits Barrie’s Downtown

Search Warrant Executed at Suspected Dispensary

Barrie Police confirm Provincial Joint Forces Cannabis Enforcement Team executed a search warrant at a business on Dunlop St. near Mulcaster this afternoon, but couldn’t say if the business was an illegal dispensary.

The multi-police service task force is responsible for investigating and dismantling illegal dispensaries across Ontario, among other duties, and falls under control of the Ontario Provincial Police.

Barrie Police spokesperson Peter Leon confirms this is the first time the task force has executed any warrants within Barrie, adding it was at a strip mall on Dunlop at Mulcaster. He went on to say the OPP would be preparing an update in a few days’ time.
