Two people are facing multiple charges after a major drug bust at a home in the Belleville area.
Ontario Provincial Police say they uncovered a "sophisticated" grow-operation that used a high intensity lighting system when they raided a garage behind a home in Quinte West.
Police seized hundreds of marijuana plants, along with a quantity of cannabis resin, magic mushrooms and cash.
Police say the drugs had a street value of just under $480,000.
Kent Swan, 36, and Nicole Swan, 34, have been charged with several drug-related offences. The pair is expected to appear in court in March.
