Toronto police officers seized more than $126,000 in illegal drugs and charged two men with trafficking during a raid on a fraternity house near the University of Toronto late Friday.
Uniform and plainclothes officers had to force their way into the Delta Kappa Epsilon Alpha Phi house when the occupants refused to answer the door, police said. Some tried to escape out a back door but were nabbed by officers waiting outside.
Police seized more than $126,000-worth of Ketamine and cocaine as well as a psilocybin, better known as "magic mushroom."
A 29-year-old graduate of the University of Toronto has been charged with two counts of cocaine possession for the purpose of trafficking, possession of the proceeds from a drug offence and possession of a prohibited weapon -brass knuckles. A current U of T student is charged with three counts of trafficking and possession of proceeds.
The pair is scheduled to appear in court Saturday.
According to its website, the Toronto chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon received its charter in 1898. The fraternity was founded at Yale in 1844 and boasts five U.S. presidents among its alumni, including George W. Bush and his father.
