Mar­i­juana plants seized in West­ern Bay

The Compass - - OPINION -

Of­fi­cers with the Trin­ity Con­cep­tion District RCMP ar­rested a 62year-old man from West­ern Bay Feb. 4 af­ter seiz­ing 40 mar­i­juana plants from a home on South Side Road in that com­mu­nity.

The RCMP said the plants were in var­i­ous stages of growth. Fer­til­izer and light­ing equip­ment were also seized from the home.

The man is fac­ing a charge of pro­duc­tion of cannabis mar­i­juana. He was re­leased from cus­tody and is sched­uled to ap­pear in Har­bour Grace pro­vin­cial court on April 16.

It was the sec­ond drug bust in the com­mu­nity in less than three weeks.

On Jan. 15, a 53-year-old West­ern Bay man was ar­rested and now faces charges un­der the Con­trolled Drugs and Sub­stances Act. They in­clude pos­ses­sion of cannabis mar­i­juana for the pur­pose of traf­fick­ing, pro­duc­tion of cannabis mar­i­juana and pos­ses­sion of prop­erty un­der $5,000 ob­tained by crime.

Of­fi­cers, armed with a search war­rant, ar­rived at the man’s prop- erty about 9:30 a.m and con­ducted a search of a pri­vate res­i­dence and two ad­ja­cent garages.

Seized dur­ing the search was a sin­gle mar­i­juana plant, some 36 grams of mar­i­juana, roughly $1,500 in cash, a tele­vi­sion be­lieved to be stolen and items such as pack­ag­ing ma­te­rial, weigh scales and var­i­ous doc­u­ments po­lice say are com­monly used by a “street dealer.”

The ac­cused was re­leased from po­lice cus­tody, and is sched­uled to ap­pear in Har­bour Grace pro­vin­cial court on March 25.
