Dauphin RCMP made the bust last Friday night, just before midnight.

Inside, they found a basement grow operation, which included 10 plants in a hydroponic system. The plants and the hydroponics equipment were all seized, as was a pound of marijuana buds and several bags of cut marijuana.

Officers searching the home also found and seized 10 grams of cocaine and several weapons, including a rifle and a crossbow.

Victor Dione Simpson, 50, of Dauphin, was the only one in the home. He was arrested and has been charged with production and possession of marijuana, including for the purposes of trafficking, as well as possession of cocaine, unauthorized possession of a firearm, and unauthorized possession of a prohibited weapon.

He's to appear in Dauphin court on Oct. 14.
