On July 15, 2010, the RCMP’s Coordinated Marihuana Enforcement Team, with assistance from District 2 RCMP and the J Division Drug Section, conducted search warrants on two properties: one in Zionville, N.B., and one in McGivney, N.B.

Sizeable marijuana grow operations were found at both locations. A total of 1667 plants were seized in Zionville, where plants were being grown both indoors and outdoors. In McGivney, 236 indoor plants were seized. Taken together, this much marijuana could have potentially produced nearly one million marijuana joints.

A 24-year-old man and a 34-year-old man, both Ontario residents, were arrested, and will be appearing in Fredericton provincial court on Friday, July 16, 2010 at 1:30pm to face charges related to production of marijuana and theft of electricity.

The investigation is ongoing, and the RCMP’s Integrated Proceeds of Crime Section and Forensic Identification Services are assisting in the investigation.
