Bay St, George RCMP seized 58 marijuana plants from a series of outdoor grow-ops in the Piccadilly area Monday.
Five clearings were located in a wooded area near Piccadilly, on the Port au Port Peninsula. These clearings were within walking distance of each other, and all had numerous marijuana plants growing in them. Several of the clearings had boards with nails sticking out of them hidden around the perimeter of the plants.
The investigation is still ongoing, and charges have not been laid against anyone at this time.
The public is reminded not to approach marijuana grow-ops, as they can be dangerous. If you locate what you believe to be a marijuana grow-op, please call your nearest police detachment, or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-363-8477.
