Montreal police carried out raids at 17 homes and seized more than 1,000 marijuana plants in connection with the dismantling of an allegedly illegal cannabis network.
The police force said in a statement the searches took place in Montreal, Laval and Saint-Lazare on Tuesday morning.
The alleged network controlled several places of production and used a fraudulent medical marijuana permit to grow their own plants, according to police. The network was reportedly involved in large-scale sales in the Greater Montreal area.
Investigators seized multiple drugs, including more than 480 pounds of cannabis, 234 amphetamine pills and 238 grams of cocaine. Police also found $100,000 in cash and an electric pulse gun.
