Around 5 p.m., Shelburne RCMP went to a residence on Birchtown Road on a routine police matter. The officer at the scene observed indications that there was an indoor marihuana grow operation on the premises.
The Shelburne County Street Crime Enforcement Unit (SCEU) assisted while a search warrant was obtained. A grow operation was subsequently located, dismantled and 17 marijuana plants were seized.
