A man faces several drug-related charges after Ottawa police uncovered a secret marijuana lab and $1.1 million of drugs inside a Constance Bay home in March.

Hydro One and police launched a joint investigation that led them to 4405 Tranquility Lane with a search warrant.

Investigators seized marijuana and syringes containing spores from the main part of the house. A team of officers in the basement located a secret door inside a closet that led to three rooms containing more than 1,100 marijuana plants.

Hydro One initiated an investigation program in 2007 to prevent the theft of power, which often relates to illegal drug laboratories.

Leonard Cameron was charged with production of cannabis marijuana, production of psilocybin, possession for the purpose of trafficking, and breach of probation.
