"We entered into an investigation back in December," shared Cpl Craig Park, "And through the investigation, we executed a search warrant at a rural property in the RM of Benson. That was on January 25th."

"As a result of that warrant, we recovered multiple property resulting in charges. 

RCMP arrested and charged 33-year-old Mark Morison with a total of 13 charges, 11 of which were for possession under $5000 and two charges for possession of property over $5000.
