A downtown Toronto pizzeria popular with university and high school students has been shut down after a police search uncovered $1 million of marijuana and other drugs on the premises.

Police allege Salvatore Crimi, 57, sold marijuana at Pizza Gigi at 189 Harbord Street, near Bathurst Street. The pizzeria is close to Central Technical School and the downtown campus of the University of Toronto.


"Officers made observations where people were actually going in and then leaving emtpy-handed, without any food," said Const. Tony Vella. A police raid early Monday turned up marijuana, Oxycontin, Oxycocet, ecstasy, a small amount of crack cocaine and $8,000 in cash, police said in a release.

"When officers arrived on scene — and they conducted the search warrant — they located the marijuana in plastic packages, in the store. But there was also marijuana located right behind the counter," said Vella.

Crimi faces one marijuana trafficking charge and 14 other drug possession charges.

A friend of mine posted this on Facebook yesterday. This was my pizza place as a kid. The original location was 1 block from my house, this one, they moved to when I was @ 12, was 3 blocks away. We would get all our Pizza from them, and when they moved to that location, I would hang around in there since they had a bunch of Arcade games. Originally it was 2 brothers who owned the place, but the guy who was arrested was the younger of the 2.

If you are running dope out of a pizza shop, it only makes sense to send your customers out with a fucking pizza box.

Epic on the dumbass owner's part.

If Howie Mandel grew his hair back and dyed it blonde, then did a few tokes, it's the same guy.

This is exactly what I thought.  It's the perfect front.  Sell the pot, then the pizza.  Make money both ways.

A local pizza place in my town was busted for selling marijuana too - same setup but it wasn't even close to $1 million worth.

On a related note, when I was a high schooler, a buddy of mine used to work for a different pizza restaurant that would also deliver alcohol (beer, wine coolers, etc). We all made sure we knew which nights he worked and would call in a pizza and alcohol order under an alias name that he knew. Thirty minutes later, the party began. I bet he made a fortune off the "tips" that he made off of us.

Did the same thing here.  Our fake name was Jake Roberts.
