21 year old man arrested by Toronto Police before school started on Thursday...

A disturbing story coming out of Miliken Public School in the Steeles and Kennedy.

A 21 year old man was found asleep, inside the school just before 8 o'clock on Thursday.

There were no students in the building and the man was quickly spotted by a staff member, woken up, and escorted out of the building.

Spokesperson for the Toronto District School Board, Ryan Bird says police were called as he was being hustled out.

Bird says he got in through a door that was unlocked to allow staff to get into the building.

The rest of the doors into the school were still locked.

Toronto Police confirmed to Newstalk1010 that they arrested 21 year old Liyao Chen, who was picked up with a 'large sum of cash' and a large amount of pills. His only ID was a passport.

He's facing charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking and property obtained by crime.

As for the locked door policy at schools, Bird says all  doors would have been locked had students been in the building.
