·1 min read

Toronto police say they have arrested two men and seized large quantities of drugs following two separate investigations.

Police say about 150 kilograms of crystal meth, cocaine, fentanyl and heroin were recovered during the probes.

They say two firearms and about half a million dollars were also seized.

The men were arrested separately and are facing multiple charges including possession for the purpose of trafficking.

Police allege that an address in Mississauga, Ont., was being used as a fentanyl lab and for distribution of drugs.

A 23-year-old man from Vaughan, Ont., and a 26-year old from Edmonton are scheduled to appear in court on separate dates later this month.
