WINNIPEG - Manitoba RCMP have busted a multimillion-dollar rural grow-op and seized marijuana worth $3.5 million.

Cpl. Miles Hiebert says Mounties executed a search warrant in the rural municipality of Fisher, about 150 kilometres north of Winnipeg.

He says the grow-op was a sophisticated and significant outdoor operation.

Hiebert says officers found plants almost two metres high - twice the usual height officers tend to find in a grow-op.

 

He says police seized almost 2,000 marijuana plants and nearly 25 kilograms of processed marijuana.

Six men were arrested and two Winnipeg men have been formally charged with production and possession of marijuana for the purposes of trafficking.
