Manitoba RCMP have busted a massive marijuana grow operation valued at $2.9 million in the RM of Ste. Rose.
The bust happened early Tuesday at a rural property near St. Amelie with the help of several detachments.
Police seized approximately 2,871 marijuana plants inside of six 2,000-square-foot green houses, as well as two more under construction.
Three men were arrested and face charges of production of a controlled substance. RCMP believe the individuals have ties to organized crime.
The investigation is ongoing.
