Police overheard cellphone conversations about Rob Ford during a drug trafficking investigation. The conversations suggested that Ford's phone was stolen at a crack house and not lost at a community event, as Ford had claimed earlier.

CTV News reports:

Alleged gangster Liban Siyad, got a phone call just before 1 a.m. on April 20, at which time he was allegedly told to go to 15 Windsor Rd., believed by police to be a crack house, because "Rob Ford wants some drugs." Siyad was later heard on wire taps saying the mayor had been "smoking his rocks" that day at 15 Windsor Rd. It was from that alleged crack house that police believe Ford's phone was stolen.

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
