On Wednesday, November 14th Amherstburg Police arrested two parties for possession of marijuana as a result of an investigation into a vehicle that had entered the ditch in the area of Concession Road 8 near County Road 10.

Subsequent to these initial arrests, Amherstburg Police were assisted by the Provincial Anti-Violence Intervention Strategy Unit, which is a joint forces operation made up of officers from Windsor, LaSalle, and Amherstburg Police Services, as well as the Windsor Police Service DIGS Unit.

As a result of this ongoing joint investigative effort, a large-scale marijuana grow operation was discovered in the area of the vehicle that went in the ditch earlier in the day. The investigation into the nearby marijuana grow operation has now resulted in the arrest of seven people, as well as two other persons who are wanted in connection to that investigation.

As a result of the execution of the search warrant in Windsor, officers from the joint investigative team also seized a vehicle, a large quantity of cash, and a loaded handgun.
