A Brampton man has pleaded guilty to possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking after a police raid last summer on a former garden centre in Innisfil.
Brian D'Arcy, 57, also pleaded guilty to unauthorized possession of a firearm.
D'Arcy received a one-year jail sentence with 244 days in custody left to be served, a 10 year weapons prohibition, a DNA order and a weapons forfeiture order.
He was arrested Aug. 5 after South Simcoe Police with assistance from the York Regional Police Canine Unit executed a search warrant at a former garden centre on Yonge Street.
Police said the facility had a number of marijuana plants being cultivated in the greenhouses.
Officers removed almost 400 plants in varying stages of growth and recovered a loaded handgun.
The street value of the seized marijuana was estimated at $400,000.
