Man charged after more than 100 illicit cannabis plants and other drugs seized from residence; “street value of the drugs to be around $114,200”

Edmonton, Alberta – Late last week, on Thursday, April 2, 2020, officers from the EPS Cannabis Investigations Unit conducted a search warrant on a residence in the area of 11 Avenue SW and Watt Blvd SW, after receiving information about a suspected grow operation.

As a result of the investigation, 106 cannabis plants, 121g of mushrooms (psilocybin), 160g of shatter, as well as various packages of edibles were seized. Other items used to produce and cultivate cannabis were also located. Police believe the total street value of the drugs to be around $114,200.

“The packaging that was used for some of the edibles was concerning, given the resemblance to the children’s snack Dunkaroos,” says Sergeant Cory Kerr of the Cannabis Investigations Unit. “While we don’t believe these edibles were made specifically for children, it’s troubling to think about the risks they would pose to a child if ingested.”

Mathew Dickie, 27, is charged with possession of illicit cannabis, cultivating more than four plants and possession of a controlled substance.
