York Regional Police say they have shut down a makeshift store in Markham where alcohol and cannabis products were being sold illegally inside a commercial unit.

Police say in November 2019, officers began investigating the “illegal store,” located inside a commercial unit on Royal Crest Court.

“As the investigation progressed, it became apparent that there were regular customers attending the commercial unit and purchasing liquor and beer,” police said in a news release issued Tuesday.

A search warrant was executed at the unit on Jan. 30, 2020 and police say they discovered $100,000 worth of alcohol inside the store as well as alcohol that was stored in moving trucks.
