Meth labs allegedly found in Scarborough apartment building; man charged

A 30-year-old Toronto man faces drug charges after police raided a Scarborough apartment building Monday and allegedly discovered three small methaphetamine labs.

Police responding to a neighbour's complaint at 190 Borough Drive initially believed they had discovered a marijuana grow-operation.

Two of the apartments were allegedly set up to produce meth, a fiercely addictive drug linked to a wide array of serious health problems, while the third appeared to have served as a lab in the past, police said.

Dan Ye was arrested in one of the apartments and he appeared in court at Old City Hall Thursday.

Drug squad officers said the investigation was continuing.

Aside from the hazards attached to meth use, amateur labs are also notoriously dangerous to operate and there have been numerous instances of fires and explosions.
