2 Durham police officers charged with drug traficking
I've been hearing a lot of talk about Durham police being corrupt but I haven't had time to follow up on it. However, the Toronto Star is reporting that "Two Durham Regional Police officers and three civilians have been arrested after a year-long investigation into an Ajax bar. The investigation, aided by officers from the Toronto Police Service, found that cocaine and marijuana were being sold at the bar. Const. Husen Aswat is facing seven counts of breach of trust, four counts of trafficking in cocaine, three counts of weapons dangerous and possession of the proceeds of crime, and one count each of theft under $5,000 and possession of property obtained by crime. Const. Amandeep Thakur has been charged with two counts of breach of trust, theft under $5,000, and possession of property obtained by crime."
The Toronto Star is also reporting that "Durham Region homicide detectives are invesitgating after a woman’s torso was found floating near Oshawa Harbour on Monday night. Const. George Tudos said the torso was found in Lake Ontario by a fisherman at around 8:30 p.m. Police said in a release on Tuesday that officers found “signs of trauma” on the torso at the scene. Tudos said officers will be checking missing persons reports in the area to try and identify the woman."
