Windsor police have seized nearly $42,000 in illegal drugs after raiding a psilocybin dispensary.

Around 4 p.m. on Tuesday, police used a search warrant at the business in the 300 block of Ouellette Ave. near University Avenue.

Items seized include

  • 2,980 psilocybin capsules
  • 1,940 grams of dried psilocybin
  • 507 grams psilocybin chocolate bars
  • 165 grams psilocybin gummies
  • 10 grams psilocybin hot chocolate
  • 7 psilocybin pens
  • 3 Dimethyltryptamine (DMT) vapes
  • 30 grams psilocybin tea
  • $2,420 in Canadian currency

A 19-year-old employee who was working at the time has been charged with possession of a substance for the purposes of trafficking.

In July, August, and December of 2023, officers used search warrants at the same location, which resulted in the seizure of over $100,000 worth of psilocybin-infused products.
