CORNWALL, ONT. - The latest Habitat for Humanity partner family — expecting to receive their home in the fall — have criminal records for running a grow-op at a former residence.
Stephan and Stephanie Durocher were both arrested May 3, 2011, by the Cornwall police’s street crime unit and charged with possession of a controlled substance and production of a substance.
They were sentenced in January 2012 to a 15-month conditional sentence and six months of probation.
Police seized $21,000 worth of drugs and other property from the home, including plant food, light bulbs and a water funnel.
Stephanie Durocher described the situation as a “poor decision” — a business idea her husband had with a friend.
