It’s an unusual fall harvest for the RCMP with the discovery of large stashes of marijuana growing in the woods at three different locations on the Avalon Peninsula.
On Sept. 26, near Salmonier Line, 65 plants were discovered by a berry picker.
The second discovery was five days later on Oct. 1, in Makinsons. There, 89 plants were found by a moose hunter. Some of the plants stood around 6 1/2 feet tall.
Again, on Oct. 4, 95 plants, along with cultivating and harvesting equipment, were found near LaManche on the Southern Shore. Provincial fish and wildlife officers stumbled upon that batch.
That’s 249 plants discovered in eight days.
