Police say, since March of this year members of the Niagara Regional Police Service Guns, Gangs, and Grows Unit have been investigating a Grimsby residence for growing marihuana.


As a result of the investigation, on Wednesday April 13th, 2016 a search warrant was granted to search a Ridge Road, west property. At 6:42 pm the warrant was executed and a male and female were arrested. Police searched the residence and discovered a marihuana grow operation in the basement consisting of over 500 marihuana plants. Police also located and seized 3.6 pounds of dried marihuana, and 440 prescription pills. The marihuana plants and dried product have a potential street value of just over $537,000.00, and the pills have a potential street value of $12,280.00.
