Three St. Catharines men charged in marijuana grow op break-in
OPP say three men are facing additional charges after a man was shot during a break-in at a licensed marijuana grow operation in southwestern Ontario.
It's alleged the accused broke into a Norfolk County residence early on Tuesday and a 49-year-old man was injured in a shooting before the suspects fled the scene.
The man has since been released from hospital and investigators say they believe his home was targeted.
Police arrested three St. Catharines men, a 22-year-old and two 23-year-olds, and charged them with break and enter, robbery and aggravated assault.
They say additional charges, including attempted murder, discharging a firearm with intent, use of a firearm while committing an offence and assault with a weapon, were laid on Friday.
OPP say the investigation is ongoing.
Norfolk OPP are still investigating and are asking anyone with information to call 1-888-310-1122 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
