Mississauga, ON (23 November, 2018) ---

Once the deal was completed, other officers moved in and arrested the alleged drug dealer and two other individuals. One of these individuals sustained a serious injury. The Director of the Special Investigations Unit, Tony Loparco, has determined there are no reasonable grounds to lay criminal charges against a Toronto Police Service officer in relation to this incident.
