NORFOLK COUNTY - Norfolk County OPP were able to fill another couple of dump trucks with illegal cannabis after a bust this morning.
Constable Ed Sanchuk says police arrested 26 people and seized hundreds of marijuana plants.
"I just want to explain that the OPP's role is to enforce and investigate criminal cannabis incidents with the focus on the apprehension of those who produce, sell, distribute, import, export and use cannabis outside the parameters of both the Provincial and Federal legislation. Plants grown outside that legislation, often times ends up towards forwarding organized crime."
