The OPP said as part of an ongoing investigation, members of its street crime unit executed a search warrant at a rural property located on Highway 36 near Dunsford. They were assisted by Haliburton Highlands OPP and the Central Region emergency response team and canine unit.
Nine persons were detained and some of the items seized included:
- 15,300 cannabis plants
