A 67-year-old Winnipeg man was arrested Wednesday after police busted a marijuana grow-op in the St. Vital area.
Police executed a search warrant in the 1000 block of St. Mary’s Road, where they found 55 marijuana plants worth an estimated $61,600.
Also seized was grow operation equipment valued at $7,000, dry marijuana worth $80 and $3,145 in Canadian currency.
Police say the water meter was also removed, allowing the suspect to steal water for the operation.
The man faces several charges and was released on a promise to appear.
