A bust by police has led to the seizure of more than $300,000 worth of pot plants.
The bust happened Monday in the 1000 block of Dugald Road at about 6 p.m., and led to the arrest of a 32-year-old man.
Police said they found 279 pot plants at the home worth about $312,000, as well as $6,000 worth of grow equipment and less than $1,000 in cash.
The 32-year-old man is now charged with production of a controlled substance, possessing a substance for the purpose of trafficking, and possessing proceeds of crime.
Police did not name the man, who was released on a promise to appear.
Officers from the Tactical Support Team, the Drug Unit and the Street Crime Unit were involved in the bust.
