At approximately 10:00 pm, officers searched an industrial park business unit and located a large indoor grow-operation inside the business. Officers seized 375 mature marijuana plants along with grow equipment and an electrical by-pass was detected indicating theft of power.
"This operation was highly sophisticated,” says S/Sgt. Roddie Macdonald, RCMP Nova Scotia Drug Coordinator, “the marijuana grow was located in an industrial complex along with legitimate businesses and this puts peoples’ lives at risk.”
A 39 year-old Prospect man was arrested and released on a promise to appear in court at a later date.
Officers remain on the scene and the investigation is ongoing.
