Toronto police say they have seized more than 90 kilograms of drugs in what they are calling the largest single seizure of powder cocaine in the force's history.

Officers who searched an east-end home and vehicle Wednesday allegedly found 73 kilograms of cocaine, 12 kilograms of crystal meth and eight kilograms of MDMA.

Police allege a criminal organization was importing and distributing cocaine in Toronto and nearby municipalities.

Nicholas Shouldice, 32, of Toronto, is charged with five counts of drug possession for the purpose of trafficking.

He was due to appear in court Thursday.

Police say he did not have a criminal record.
