The Moose Jaw Police Service is sharing what information they can at this point about a recent bust

They executed a search warrant on Thursday at 244 River Street West known as MJ Compassion. Investigators say they had previous discussions with the shop, advising them about breaking the law.

"There had been communication with people associated with MJ Compassion and with the Police Service trying to make sure there was a good clear understanding of what was legal activity and what was not. And there is only so much information we can share at this point because it is an ongoing investigation,"  explained Sgt. Kevin Pilsworth. 

A question that came to mind after hearing about the initial incident, was why did the Police give a warning, and what took so long between when they were notified of the illegal activity and when the warrant was executed?

"Depending on how information is flowing and what type of activity is involved in a file sometimes it takes a little bit of time and in this case, that was the situation," answered Sgt.Pilsworth. 

He also added that despite the legalization date being around the corner, there are still a lot of strict and clear rules surrounding growing, distributing and carrying marijuana. 

"The activity that was being conducted at MJ Compassion is not only illegal now, but it will be in the coming months. There is only a small number of businesses that are going to be able to sell marijuana products and if someone doesn't have a licence it is certainly not legal for them to sell marijuana."

Following the search and seizure of marijuana, and marijuana products, officers arrested Dylan Lawrence of Moose Jaw charged with 3 counts of Trafficking Marijuana and possession of Proceeds of Crime. Lawrence was released on conditions and will appear in court on a later date.

Jonathan Koch of Moose Jaw and Chevy Daly of Regina both face one charge of trafficking. The pair were released on a Recognizance with conditions and will appear in court.
