RCMP executed a search warrant at the home on Tuesday and seized a firearm, drug paraphernalia, marijuana seeds and approximately 400 marijuana plants, according to Constable Vanessa Cormier of the Woodstock Detachment.

Police say the marijuana plants seized could have produced up to 200,000 joints, once they were mature.

The man was released on a promise to appear in court at a later date.  The investigation into the illegal grow operation is continuing.
