Yesterday at approximately 1 p.m.
, RCMP conducted a check of a male known to be on specific conditions in the Hebbville area as part of its Crime Reduction Strategy in Lunenburg. When RCMP were refused entry into the house, RCMP members obtained an arrest warrant and entered the residence. Upon entering the residence, RCMP located the 31-year-old man along with another 38-year-old man, as well as an indoor Marijuana grow operation. Both Lunenburg County men were arrested without incident.
The Lunenburg District Street Crime Enforcement Unit(SCEU), assisted by members of the Bridgewater Police Service, executed a second Search Warrant under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act and seized a number of plants and growing equipment. One of the men was remanded to the Burnside Correctional Center due to a violation of conditions of his previous release documents. The second man, who is facing charges of Marijuana Cultivation, was released on and will appear in Bridgewater Provincial Court at a later date.
