The Ottawa Police Service drug unit said it collected more than 200 kilograms of marijuana plants during its annual fall 2015 outdoor eradication project.

Police identified 15 locations across in various rural areas of the city and harvested 22 “patches” totalling 1,505 marijuana plants, which they say have a street value of more than $1.5 million. The plants were seized.  No suspect have been identified.

“The seizure of this quantity of marijuana represents a significant loss of illicit profits which finance a variety of criminal enterprises including gun smuggling, human trafficking and cocaine importation,” said acting staff sergeant Ian McDonell, of the Ottawa Police Service’s drug unit.

Police asked that anyone with information relating to drug activity within the city’s boundaries,  should contact the Ottawa Police Drug Unit at 613-236-1222 extension 5083.
