Hazardous material teams, along with members of the Toronto police drug squad, combed through a Scarborough apartment Monday after police discovered what they believed to be a drug lab.
Toronto Fire’s decontamination unit was also called to the residence on Borough Drive, near Ellesmere and McCowan Roads, around 3 p.m. A worker in the apartment’s management office had become suspicious of the activity in one of the units.
Toronto police have not confirmed if the discovery was a drug lab. However, they continued their investigation at the scene into Monday night.
