On the evening of June 27, neighbours next to a North Shore Road residence noticed a flurry of activity as police executed a warrant for a grow operation.
Sgt. Voller could not disclose the kind of investigation that led to the warrant, but he did say that it was a Controlled Drugs and Substances Act warrant, and he did confirm that it was a grow operation.
Police have yet to apprehend a suspect, and no charges have yet been laid.
Police arrived at the home at approximately 5:45 p.m., and were there until at least 9:30 p.m. extracting marijuana plants and related paraphernalia.
“And anything related to the warrant,” says Voller.
“We also seized a loaded, 12 gauge, sawed off shotgun,” stated Voller.
Constable Danny Butler is the officer in charge of the investigation, but he was not available for comment.
Voller did say that it is standard procedure for BC Hydro to accompany the RCMP when executing a grow operation warrant, as they are in charge of cutting the power to any residence where a grow operation has taken place. The investigation is ongoing.
