Toronto police are asking for the public’s help in locating a 25-year-old Scarborough man who hasn’t been seen since last week. Police said Zhu Jian âFrankâ Wang was last seen at 3 a.m. Friday near Yonge and Gerrard streets. Aashish Oberoi, a friend of Wang’s, told Global News Wang was last seen at a downtown McDonald’s getting food after going to a couple of bars with friends.
He said he hasn’t been home and his social media accounts have been inactive. He also said his cellphone is turned off. He normally messages at least a couple of people in the morning to be like, âThat was a fun night,’ or something else and lets us know what he’s doing,â Oberoi said.
- Floors, 38 studio suites
- Hole in the Wall
- Track & Field (860 College St.)
- Music Gallery (30 St. Patrick Street to 1984, then 1087 Queen Street West)
Oberoi said Wang is originally from the United States and just finished studying psychology at York University. He said Wang is friendly and outgoing, and that this is out of character for Wang. He is a genuinely nice guy who is reliable and always answers his messages,â Oberoi said. He’s normally a very happy person.
Police described Wang as 5’9â³ tall with a medium build and short, black hair. He was last seen wearing a grey long-sleeved shirt and white shoes. Officers are concerned for Wang’s safety, police said. Investigators are in the process of reviewing security footage and financial records.
Good Weeds Lounge at 940 Danforth Ave in Toronto has been raided by police, after opening just four weeks ago. Operators Erin Goodwin and Chris Goodwin have reportedly been taken into custody at the 54 Divisionstation.
Don Briere co-owns Good Weeds, along with several other dispensaries across the country, and said he’s still waiting for more information after the pair were taken into custody several hours ago during a raid by the drug squad. We’ve got people looking at getting them out with a lawyer as soon as possible,â said Briere.
Briere said he’s not sure why the shop was targeted by authorities, who have previously taken a hands off approach to the city’s dispensaries, saying they don’t have the resources to police all cannabis activity. It usually only takes one complaint,â said Briere.
On Facebook, Jamie McConnell posted that he was at Good Weeds when a dozen police officers entered the shop, placing handcuffs on himself, the Goodwins and three others. McConnell said all customers were questioned and released and he was also let go when authorities were told he didn’t work there.
Briere said the business has had its windows papered over by police, who have also disabled the store’s live camera feed. To his knowledge, the store has no hidden camera back-up to monitor what authorities are doing in the shop.
We thought the pot drug war was over, but apparently they want to continue wasting our money while our children are being attacked by pedophiles and violent people are out there,â said Briere. Why are they selectively assaulting and terrorizing and holding these people in double-maximum isolation compounds for cannabis?
Briere said operations like Good Weeds provide a service to patients that need cannabis to live. Where are sick people supposed to go smoke their stuff, in school grounds, in parks, out in the street? We gave them a safe alternative to consume their cannabis,â he said. Briere said he was surprised the raid took place and doesn’t know if this signals a shift in attitude from the city’s police.
What’s the matter with these guys? The police are telling us they want to raid us, I wonder why – we’d like an answer to that,â Briere said. Police said the Goodwins were charged with possession with the purpose to traffic and possession of proceeds from crime. Erin Goodwin was charged with possession.
