(Globe Newswire) Toronto—The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) announced criminal charges laid against five individuals who were involved in the laundering of over $3 million CAD in illegal cannabis sales. Locations in which said laundering occurred include several casinos in the Greater Toronto Area and Niagara regions.

Both the Ontario Provincial Police’s Investigation and Enforcement Bureau (IEB) and the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) provided assistance to the RCMP throughout the investigation.

The RCMP’s charges laid are the culmination of a four-year investigation. The AGCO will now complete a regulatory review of regulated gaming entities in the province to assess the effectiveness of their control methods.
