Police have potentially prevented a lot of prairie smoke by making a grow-op bust on a street of the same name.
In a news release, officials say officers raided three homes in the Sage Creek, Royalwood and Island Lakes neighbourhoods in the early hours of July 30 after a lengthy investigation.
At a home in the first 100 block of Prairie Smoke Drive (Sage Creek), police seized 649 marijuana plants with an estimated street value of $726,880; half a pound of dry marijuana with an estimated street value of $1,500; and grow equipment valued at $20,000.
At a home in the first 100 block of Breton Bay (Royalwood), officers found 577 marijuana plants with an estimated street value of $646,240, three-quarters of a pound of dry marijuana with an estimated street value of $2,250, and grow equipment valued at $20,000.
And at a home in the 400 block of De La Seigneurie Boulevard (Island Lakes), cops discovered $3,700 in Canadian currency.
As a result of the raids, a 53-year-old man and 36-year-old woman were arrested and later released on a promise to appear in court at a later date on the following charges: production of controlled substances (cannabis marijuana), possessing a substance for the purposes of trafficking (cannabis marijuana), and possessing the proceeds of crime.
