Franks said his drug squad unit made a series of busts in Scarborough this week, including the baby rescue where a pit bull attacked his officers.
"The dog pounced on the officers and they had to shoot it," said Franks, noting the canine was euthanized afterwards by animal services.
Franks said officers discovered a crystal meth operation and the baby was exposed to it all.
"Children's Aid was called in to take over custody," said Franks, adding 86 grams of crystal meth was seized, along with some percocets and $2,400.
A 25-year-old man and woman were charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking and appeared in court in Toronto Thursday.
The woman was released on $5,000 bail posted by a relative and the man was remanded in custody until his next hearing Aug. 7.
The woman, due back in court Sept. 10, refused to comment if the child has been returned to her when reached at her relative's home, where she must reside to fulfill bail conditions.
A spokesman for the Children's Aid Society of Toronto also wouldn't confirm if the child has been returned.
The two accused cannot be named while dealing with Children's Aid.
Three other busts occurred in the immediate area where the baby was rescued, including a trio of alleged cocaine dealing brothers. Tavar, 25, Kadeem, 21, and Tyrone Knott, 26 -- and Tabia Morant, 25, with possession for the purpose of trafficking.
Investigators also came across a family in possession of seven replica firearms. Officers seized the fake guns, including five pistols and two rifles, Wednesday from a family at their home. No criminal charges were laid.
"These guns are identical to the real ones and can be used to commit crimes," said Franks, adding the investigation is ongoing.
