Drug-enforcement Mounties busted a medical marijuana operation they say was exceeding its legal limit for pot production “by a factor of almost seven times.” Last weekend, RCMP investigators searched a property in the 26000-block 112th Avenue in Maple Ridge. The property had two Health Canada licences that allowed for a total of 220 marijuana plants for medicinal use.
During the bust, Mounties seized 1,490 plants. Two men were arrested in a barn, where the pot was being grown, and a third inside the home. Also seized was an R44 helicopter, two pickup trucks and three mobile grow ops that were not yet being used. The investigation is still under way and more arrests are expected. Anyone with information on the group and its operation is asked to call RCMP at 778-571-7535, or anonymously at Crime Stoppers, 1-800-222-8477.
