Saskatoon A Battleford judge found a Medstead-area couple not guilty of marijuana trafficking and production charges after RCMP seized 700 cannabis plants on their property. Cory Graham and Melanie Boulette were acquitted on June 25 in Battleford Court of Queen’s Bench of possession for the purpose of trafficking, producing marijuana and possession of proceeds of crime. Graham and Boulette were charged along with Oscar Gutierrez Reyes after RCMP seized the plants, 2.3 kilograms of packaged marijuana and more than $6,000 in cash on their rural property in September 2016. In a news release issued a week after the arrests, the RCMP called it a “sophisticated” grow op. Reyes was tried separately.
