Pot bust declared NWO's biggest ever [CAN]

Pot bust declared NWO's biggest ever
August 19, 2005 - chroniclejournal.com

In what police are calling Northwestern Ontario's biggest ever bust of an outdoor growing operation, more than 6,600 marijuana plants have been seized and destroyed just northwest of Thunder Bay.

Police are pegging the value at $6.5 million.

According to Thunder Bay OPP spokesman Const. Tim Buckland, the plants were seized Monday morning but no arrests had been made by late Thursday.

Buckland said police received a tip and were watching the Ware Township site before moving in. He would not comment on whether the growers recognized the police presence and stayed away. Nor would he speculate on the likelihood of arrests other than to say "this is still a very active investigation."

He did say that no specific individuals were being sought in the operation that involves Thunder Bay OPP and North West Region tri-force drug unit officers.

Police are reluctant to say exactly where in rural Ware Township the marijuana was growing, other than to describe it as being planted in three separate plots in the bush.

It was neatly camouflaged, growing among native vegetation in clearings on the 200-acre property that also housed a dwelling.

It was not being cultivated like a farm crop and the total amount of land with plants was estimated at just 1,500 square metres.

Thirteen officers were involved in the seizure, but citing security concerns, Buckland would not say how the plants were destroyed.
