Officers seized $16,000 in cash as well as $2,000 worth of pot-infused edibles.

Following the three-week investigation, police say 27-year-old Michael Leeder of Mississauga was charged with possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.

Leeder, an employee of the London Relief Centre, was also charged earlier with breaching an undertaking.

An undertaking is a document created by either a court or the police that places the person being charged with an offence under certain conditions. Basically, if someone is charged with an offence, they may have to sign an undertaking when being released by police, and if they do not follow the conditions of that undertaking, they can be charged with breaching an undertaking.

Anyone with information in relation to this incident is asked to call the London Police Service at 519-661-5670 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Information can also be sent in online anonymously here.
