Their investigation led them to other properties in Toronto, where they arrested a fourth man and allegedly seized another 29 kilograms of cocaine, three kilograms of crystal meth and 250 millimetres of liquid GHB.

Philipos Kollaros, 33, of Vancouver; Ritesh Thakur, 40, and Gursharan Singh, 29, of Mississauga; and Dimitri Alexiou, 36, of Quebec, have been charged with drug trafficking and possession.
