ORILLIA, ON, Oct. 26, 2011 /CNW/ - As illegal marihuana crops are now being prepared for distribution, Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) reminds all Ontario residents to be aware of their safety near marihuana growing and processing locations.
The OPP is pro-actively warning everyone there are many safety risks associated with the annual marihuana harvest and distribution process. During this time of year, many outdoor marihuana crops have been harvested. Other criminals who target specific homes and locations for robberies and home invasions are a concern for the OPP.
The OPP is warning people who own or occupy premises used for the growing and processing of marihuana, that they are not only jeopardizing their own safety but also the safety of their families and other occupants.
If you have any information regarding illegal marihuana grow ops, contact the OPP, your local police service or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
