From Domestic Disturbance To Pot Bust

The Ontario Provincial Police has arrested a 46-year-old man and issued an arrest warrant for a 31-year-old woman after a search turned up a marijuana grow operation.

Police were called to a home in Leamington around 2pm Wednesday to investigate a domestic disturbance after four people were assaulted.

Inside the home, officers discovered a marijuana grow operation, so they got a search warrant and seized 74 marijuana plants, 52g of dried marijuana and growing equipment.

The 46-year-old man faces four counts of assault, a charge of cruelty to animals, resisting arrest and drug charges. The 31-year-old woman also faces drug charges.
