Watson Lake RCMP officers dismantled a marijuana grow operation Monday evening.
With search warrant in hand, officers raided the small Watson Lake home and found 81 marijuana plants and six grams of psilocybin, or magic mushrooms.
Three people — a 39-year old man, a 43-year-old woman and a youth — were charged with a variety of drug possession and trafficking offences.
The trio is known to each other, said Sgt. John Bennet from Watson Lake RCMP detachment.
But he couldn’t confirm if they are related.
The grow-op wasn’t super-sophisticated, said Bennet.
“But it was obvious somebody put time and energy into it,” he added.
The three will appear in Watson Lake court June 2 at 10 a.m.
The RCMP investigation continues. (JW)
