Police just busted an illegal spa & casino operating out of a 20,000 square foot GTA mansion
Are we in an episode of The Sopranos over here? A recent press release from the York Regional Police sure makes it feel that way! On Tuesday, officials announced that they made a massive crime bust that feels eerily similar to, well, any of your favourite mob shows. We’re not saying this was organized crime. But we’re not not saying that…
The bust was part of an ongoing investigation called “Project Endgame.” Apparently, it all took place at a 20,000 square-foot, multi-million dollar mansion. During the bust, 29 people were charged and the police seized over $1 million in cash and 11 firearms. Wowza!
This $9 million Decourcy Court palace in #Markham was the site of a high-end illegal casino and spa operation recently shut down by @YRP investigators as part of Project Endgame. More at https://t.co/3m7Ct9rNDe. pic.twitter.com/waUAx6yXC4

So what exactly were they doing there? Apparently, the visit was to dismantle an illegal casino and spa. An illegal casino and spa? C’mon now. You can’t convince us that’s not a little shady…
According to the York Regional Police report, all of this is part of a larger underground scheme of illegal gaming. There have been multiple busts in the area since “Project Endgame” began in May. You can read more details about all this at the official York Regional Police webpage here.
So stay safe out there, people. In the meantime, we’ll be waiting for the Martin Scorsese adaptation of all this once it’s all cleared up.
