Calgary police have seized more than $13-million worth of marijuana and magic mushrooms from an online business called The ChronFather.
According to an archive of the company’s website, The ChronFather billed itself as an online dispensary for “bulk/craft” marijuana and “zoomer” products.
The Calgary Police Service (CPS) says its investigation began in April after a tip about the online sales of psilocybin and cannabis products operating out of a Calgary home.
Investigators found several properties in British Columbia that police allege were being used in the trafficking operation to produce, distribute and store the drugs.
Dealers collected $11M since January
Police say the website’s operators collected more than $11 million since January.
Last week, CPS and RCMP executed five search warrants at properties in Calgary, Kelowna and Beaverdell, B.C., resulting in the seizure of about $13 million in cannabis products and $85,000 in dried and gummy magic mushrooms.
Police also seized cash, four rifles and a truck.
