Fahad Hussain court ordered to live at 1809 Liatris Dr. Pickering where carfentanil later discovered
Fahad Hussain — who faced charges of petty crack trafficking in Saskatoon in 2015 — was supposed to be living at 1809 Liatris Dr., the Pickering property of his surety Maisum Ansari in 2017.
Hussain stayed in Saskatchewan for another year and then had his charges transferred back to his home city of Toronto where he remained on bail with his long-time pal Ansari as his surety.
Ansari, who has no criminal record, had a high-level job until the publicity of his bust from the huge drug and gun seizure spread.
It’s alleged the murder weapon used by Hussain’s younger brother Faisal, 29, was stolen in a burglary of a Saskatoon gun shop in 2016 and police are investigating the link between the burglary and Faisal’s access to weapons perhaps through his brother.
In June 2017, Fahad Hussain, now 31, was found unresponsive and was driven by the downstairs tenant of the Pickering home to Lakeridge Health Centre.
The elder Hussain — who has remained for the last 13 months in a vegetative state — had consumed both heroin and cocaine and the cocaine in his lungs was “possibly laced” with another substance, court heard.
Hussain, apparently, was either trying to overdose or had consumed substances without knowing the deadly additives were in his recreational drugs.
Three months after Hussain’s overdose in June 2017, police found 42 kilograms of carfentanil — mixed with 17 kilograms of a cutting agent plus caffeine — and 33 firearms at Hussain’s home and his surety Ansari’s rental property.
Both Ansari, who remains on bail but has lost his job and his marriage, and his tenant, who’s in custody, are facing charges linked to the possession of what police describe as the largest seizure of carfentanil in Canada and the weapons cachet.
Last September, a carbon monoxide detector was activated inside the north Pickering home because of the toxic atmosphere.
An upstairs tenant phoned 911 over Ansari’s objections because his empty basement apartment didn’t meet Fire Code standards– an explanation a judge found reasonable when Ansari was later granted bail.
Carfentanil, an elephant sedative, is 10,000 times more potent than morphine and 100 times more powerful than standard fentanyl.
Due to its potency, fetanyl analogs are often mixed with powder cocaine and sometimes it is mistaken for powder cocaine, which has triggered overdoses, a 2017 Health Canada study reported.
Hussain’s drug charges were stayed in January.
