ONTARIO - Ontario Police served search warrants at three different homes in the same neighborhood resulting in the seizure of thousands of marijuana plants.
On April 12, 2022, Ontario Police Officers served search warrants at two homes in the 4100 block of S. Canal Way and one home in the 2900 block of E. Grafton Street. The warrants resulted in the seizure of 2650 marijuana plants. Each of the homes were vacant at the time police arrived and no arrests have been made.
