Marihuana grow-op discovered on Bluewater Road

The RCMP Marihuana Grow Operations Team, assisted by Federal Drugs, Synthetic Drug Unit and Halifax District RCMP members, executed a Controlled Drugs and Substance Act warrant during the evening hours of February 19 at a property on Bluewater Road in Bedford.

At approximately 10 p.m., officers searched an industrial park business unit and located a large indoor grow-operation inside the business. Officers seized 375 mature marihuana 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 marihuana 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.

If you believe you have located a marihuana grow operation, please contact any RCMP Detachment, local police or Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or by a Secure Web Tips at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca. Calls to Crime Stoppers are not taped or traced and if police make an arrest and lay charges based on a tip, callers qualify for a cash award from $50 – $2000.
