You know, I’ve always thought that being a superintendent would be a really relaxed job. Organizing your time yourself and ensuring you get through the assigned list of tasks. But there’s one thing you really can’t do– and that’s run a grow-op out of your building. You might be able to get away with a couple of plants, but when you’re running a $2.6 million marijuana grow-op, you’re bound to get caught.
According to the Star:
On November 1, Toronto police said they seized 2674 plants from a large marijuana grow operation in the maintenance area in the roof of 88 Corporate Drive.
Damn. That’s a lot of pot. Quite the operation– really takes balls!
But he didn’t run it all alone. He had the help of two security guards that also worked at the condominium. One of them even had marijuana on her when they were arrested. She’ll be charged with possession too, but I’m sure that’s a drop in the bucket compared with the rest of the charges.
You always assume that people like this will get caught–but I wonder how exactly. The police probably wouldn’t have a hard time seeing the electricity bills skyrocket when you’re maintaining what is essentially a commercial greenhouse in a condo.
