Pharmacist Waseem Shaheen - Drug Dealer

A burly man wearing a clown mask walks into a pharmacy brandishing a large knife. He hands the pharmacist a note. Waseem Shaheen opens the narcotics safe and fills a white garbage bag with drugs while the impatient robber waves his knife threateningly. Shaheen hands over the bag and drops to his knees, hands in the air as the robber thrusts the knife through the air a few more times for good measure.

It was all theater. Shaheen was running an illicit drug-dealing operation in which he trafficked at least 5,000 fentanyl patches out the back door of his Ottawa pharmacy. Shaheen was charged, convicted and sentenced to a 14-year prison term for his troubles.
