More than 1,500 plants seized from Abbotsford grow-op bust

Abbotsford Police seized more than 1,500 marijuana plants from a home in the 34100 block of Old Yale Road on Thursday night.

Members of the patrol division, working on a Marijuana Enforcement Project (MEP) investigation, were assisted by the drug squad in executing a search warrant at the residence just before 5:30 p.m.

The home contained more than 650 "clones" (seedlings) and about 850 mother plants. A 27-year-old man was arrested and faces charges of production and possession for the purpose of trafficking.

This is the second bust since the formation this month of MEP, which involves patrol officers – instead of only the drug enforcement unit – investigating suspected grow-ops.
