Ontario Provincial Police say they seized more than 1,900 cannabis plants in a raid of a property in Brinston on July 13, arresting two. 

The investigation is ongoing. The two arrested were charged under the Cannabis Act with  cultivating, propagating or harvesting a cannabis plant from seed or plant material that is illicit cannabis.

Police estimate the value of the plants at $1.9 million, or $1,000 each. No dried cannabis or other cannabis products were mentioned in the police report. The image released by OPP online shows the inside of a moderately-sized greenhouse full of cannabis plants.

Brinston is about an hour south east of Ottawa.
