Police took down a grow-up in East Kildonan, seizing marijuana plants worth more than half-a-million dollars and arresting two suspects on drug charges. The actual seizure took place weeks ago, on Oct. 23 and it is only being reported now.

It was a takedown that involved the police marijuana grow operation unit, its tactical support team and four patrol officers with a court-ordered search warrant.

Two men, aged 51 and 37, were inside the home in the 400 block of Munroe Avenue at the time.

They face numerous drug-related charges.

Police found in the home:

  • 530 marijuana plants (estimated street value: $593,600)
  • grow operation equipment worth $9,500
  • 234 grams of marijuana (estimated street value: $2,340)
  • 7 pieces of crack cocaine worth $140
