Barrie Police continue in bust-grow-op mode.
Monday night, drug officers pulled over a car on Mapleview that had a connection to the Saturday drug bust on Cartwright Drive. The driver was arrested with equipment in his ride that had been removed from another grow-op that had been shut down.
The search merited a search warrant for a house on Madelaine Drive, approaching Yonge Street off Mapleview. That search yielded more harvested marijuana, and remnants of several marijuana plants. Officers say the grow-op, if it had fully flowered, would have produced lots more than 1,000 plants.

Dude, where’s my car?
A life lesson for a resident of Aldergrove Circle: don’t leave valuables in your car overnight, for it makes the conveyance a sitting duck for possible thieves.
Police were called to the house in the Cundles-Bayfield area, to find that the 2004 Honda Civic had been spirited out of the driveway, valuables and all. No bead on suspects just yet.
