Ontario Police Seize 30,000 Pot Plants in Former Brewery

Written by CBC News Online Staff

January 12, 2004

BARRIE, ONT. - Calling it the largest and most sophisticated marijuana operation in Canadian history, Ontario police said they have seized 30,000 plants which they say is worth worth more than $30 million in an abandoned Molson brewery facility.

Wayne Frechette: 'This is not a Ma and Pa operation.'

Barrie police Chief Wayne Frechette said the growing facility was a "massive operation" that proved "organized crime is present in most, if not all, of our communities."

"This is not a Ma and Pa operation," he said.

Nine men were arrested in connection with the operation. Investigators say they later uncovered 3,000 more marijuana plants in a nearby industrial complex.

Police said both operations were conducted on a 24-hour basis.

The former brewery was raided Saturday by about 100 Barrie and provincial police officers acting on a tip.

Police said the growers used more than 5,574 square metres in the operation. They also had living accommodations for up to 50 people, including common areas, televisions, refrigerators and stoves.

More than 1,000 grow lights were used, police said.

According to police, millions of dollars were invested in equipment for the operation, which was capable of producing up to three or four crops a year. Vats previously used by the brewery housed hundreds of plants.

Molson closed the brewery in 2000, and sold the building to a company that leases out space to a number of other businesses.

Barrie is an hour away from my house. I've driven past there tons of times.
There was a connected operation busted a few days later just a little bit down the highway from the old Molson place.

Computer monitors fry your brain too. I'm surprised I have any left after the time I've spent on the computer lately.
