MILTON, ON - A rural Ontario couple face bestiality charges after being busted for allegedly growing pot in a dog kennel, Halton Regional Police said Friday.

Officers executed a search warrant Thursday at a farmhouse in Nassagaweya Twp., about 70 km west of Toronto, and located a "sophisticated" indoor marijuana grow-op, police said.

But pot was not all they allegedly found.

"While searching the residence, (officers) seized evidence related to bestiality involving a dog," police said.

Investigators did not elaborate on what that "evidence" included.

But they claim about $9,500 in harvested marijuana, an undisclosed amount of anabolic steroids and a 12-gauge shotgun were also found in the house.
Two young kids were living at the residence with the accused couple, police said.

The grow-op was allegedly found in a separate building next to the house, both of which are tucked about 500 metres back from the road on the sprawling snow-covered property 20 km northwest of Milton.

Police allege more than 1,600 plants worth about $210,000 were seized from the building, which they claim also housed a dog kennel.

Ryan Brett and Donna Fleury, both 34, were arrested and charged with bestiality and firearms-related offences.

Brett also faces drug possession, production and trafficking charges.

Fleury has since been released on a promise to appear in court at a later date.

Brett appeared briefly in a Milton courtroom Friday and was remanded into custody, so he'll spend at least the weekend behind bars.

He is expected to appear in court again Monday for a bail hearing.
