Pla­cen­tia-Whit­bourne District RCMP raided a house in Dunville Fri­day evening, May 29 net­ting dozens of cannabis mar­i­juana plants.

Sgt. Boyd Mer­rill, Op­er­a­tions NCO said po­lice seized drug para­pher­na­lia in ad­di­tion to other items that gave ev­i­dence of drug pro­duc­tion and pos­si­ble fu­ture traf­fick­ing.

“ This is the sec­ond search in less than a month in this district,” said Sgt. Mer­rill.

“Po­lice will de­stroy th­ese drugs,” he said, adding: “This will re­sult in thou­sands of dol­lars of drugs that will not be able to poi­son our youth.”

The po­lice spokesman said the RCMP in this area “re­main vig­i­lant in the war against drug pro­duc­tion, traf­fick­ing, and us­age.”
