Montreal rang alarm on Toronto drug squad

Nice to see Police Forces working together, well except Torontos Police Force who do not like to hear bad news about their Bad Cops.

Montreal police raised a red flag about allegedly corrupt Toronto drug squad officers in 1997, but to no avail, newly obtained documents show.

The since disbanded drug squad was the subject of Canada's largest-ever police corruption probe after complaints from drug dealers eventually triggered an internal investigation by a special task force.

A 2004 Montreal police document, obtained by CBC News and the Toronto Star, reveals that the force also alerted Toronto police to troubles in late 1997 after they had a "suspicious" encounter with two drug squad officers who seemed singularly focused on securing the cash from a suspect's safety deposit box.
