1,000 plants seized in Maple Ridge

More than 1,000 marijuana plants were seized from a house in Maple Ridge after police executed a search warrant at the property on Friday.

Ridge Meadows RCMP entered the home on Laurel Place in Maple Ridge just before 10 a.m.

While officers were obtaining a search warrant, an undercover unit watching the property saw a man leaving the house. The man was stopped and arrested.

Cpl. Alanna Dunlop said the arrest resulted in the seizure of money, believed to be associated with proceeds of crime.

Police found 1,026 marijuana plants in varying stages of growth inside the house.

The man has since been released from custody on a promise to appear in court.
