RCMP are on the hunt for someone who planted over 100 pot plants in an unsuspecting farmer’s field.

Officers got the call on Saturday from a farmer in the RM of Shellmouth-Boulton, who said he found some “unknown plants” growing in his oat crop.

RCMP went to the 20-acre farm and realized the plants were marijuana nearly ready to be harvested.

Officers called in Manitoba Conservation, and together they seized 146 plants.

None of farmer’s crops were damaged by the plants, and no charges have been laid.
