Lacking the luck of the Irish
The occupant of a home lacked the luck of the Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, when police showed up in response to a panic alarm at the residence.
Despite telling police nothing was wrong, the man, who is known to the local RCMP, couldn’t do much about an “overpowering” smell of marijuana coming from the residence Sunday afternoon.
The man was taken into custody, and after a search of the residence, RCMP discovered and seized 91 pounds of marijuana.
RCMP continue to investigate. The man’s name is being withheld until Crown counsel has reviewed the case and will consider charges under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.
