RCMP found a number of mature marijuana plants, drug paraphernalia and grow-op supplies in Eldon Sept. 21.
A Kings County resident was arrested Friday and $25,000 worth of marijuana plants seized.
The RCMP Street Level Drug Unit, with assistance from members of the Montague RCMP Detachment, executed the search warrant at an undisclosed property in Kings County. A police news release says the plants could have produced more than 10,000 marijuana joints for sale on the street.
Other drug-related materials were also seized. The person arrested at the scene is currently facing charges of production of marijuana and trafficking of marijuana.
The investigation continues.
