Ontario provincial police say they seized more than $4 million worth of marijuana and related products after a bust in South Glengarry on Wednesday.
They said local officers, members of a drug enforcement unit and an emergency response team executed warrants at properties on Concession Road 7 and Cuthbert Road.
The seized items have an estimated street value of more than $4 million:
- 3775 marijuana plants.
- 186 pounds of marijuana buds.
- 237 pounds of marijuana “shake”, or bits and pieces.
- 75 pounds of a mixture to make hashish oil.
Police said they also dismantled an elaborate drying system, including several pieces of industrial equipment.
Six people have been arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking and two counts of production of a controlled substance.
They are a 57-year-old man from South Glengarry, a 57-year-old man from Hawkesbury, a 66-year-old Ottawa man and three men from Mexico aged 39, 41 and 50.
They are all scheduled to appear in court in Cornwall on Oct. 29.
