A 51-year-old woman faces charges after Winnipeg police officers dismantled a marijuana grow operation at a North End home.
Police said the drug unit seized 765 pot plants, valued on the street at about $860,000, at a home in the 400 block of Flora Avenue on Wednesday.
Officers also seized about $7,500 worth of growing equipment, police said.
The woman was arrested and faces charges of production of marijuana and possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking.
She was released on a promise to appear in court. Police didnít release her name because the charges havenít been formally laid.
