Smoky Lake RCMP have seized forty plants from a hidden grow-op southeast of the town.
Police say they found a path leading to a secluded area in the woods near the North Saskatchewan River after receiving a report.
“This grow operation could have continued if not for a tip by the public,” says Sergeant Al Baird, Smoky Lake Detachment Commander, “It is a great result when we can stop any illegal drugs from possibly being sold.”
