Police seized what they say is $1.5 million worth of marijuana in a raid on Hamilton Mountain home Thursday.
Hamilton police found what they called “a very large, sophisticated grow operation that utilized the entire home,” on Ninth Avenue near Fernwood Crescent.
Police seized almost 1,500 marijuana plants, along with some street-ready marijuana.
The hydro line leading into the home had been compromised, and Horizon Utilities was called and shut off power to the home.
A 26-year-old male has been charged with cultivation and possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking, as well as theft of electricity.
The investigation is ongoing.
