Ontario Police in the Muskoka area say they have charged a man in connection with an illicit cannabis delivery service.

The Muskoka Community Street Crime Unit (CSCU) of the OPP began an investigation in February into mobile cannabis delivery service operating throughout the Muskoka region.

On February 19, 2021 the service was observed making a number of stops from Gravenhurst to Huntsville. The Muskoka CSCU arrested the delivery driver, and a search yielded in excess of $10,000 worth of illicit cannabis products including 986 grams of dried cannabis flower, 6 grams of hash, 5 grams of cannabis resin, 1,680 grams of edibles, 16 disposal vape pens, $530 cash, tinctures, a collapsible baton, and 1 cellphone.

An image supplied by the OPP shows numerous professionally-packaged and labeled cannabis products. One service found online lists several products that match those in the image supplied by OPP. The website says they accept cash and email money transfers and provide a password consumers can give to the delivery driver.

42-year-old Adrian Stein of Toronto, Ontario is charged with the following offences:
