Wellington County OPP have charged three people after a drug raid early Thursday morning.

It was just before 6:30 a.m. when Wellington County OPP uniform officers, the OPP Street Crime Unit and the West Region OPP Emergency Response Team executed a search warrant at a residence on Albert Steet in Mount Forest.

As a result of the search warrant, officers arrested two men and one woman.

Officers seized were 210 marijuana plants at various stages of growth, along with marijuana bud, vials of marijuana resin and Psilocybin mushrooms.   They also confiscated materials associated with drug trafficking and an illegal spring-action knife.

A 48-year-old man, a 54-year-old woman, and a 21-year-old old man, all from Mount Forest, each face several drug-related charges.
