Another large North Okanagan grow-op has been scuttled by RCMP.
Officers executed search warrants in the 1300 block of Mabel Lake Road, near Lumby, Tuesday. The warrants were for theft of hydro and production of a controlled substance.
“Shortly after our officers arrived on the rural property, they arrested a 40-year-old resident,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.
“The search of the property located 1,951 plants in various stages of growth in a large shop.”
Several pounds of dried bud and a large quantity of cash were also found.
There was a hydro bypass that was supplying some of the electricity, and police discovered a diesel generator in a large shipping container buried underground. It was supplying the remainder of the power.
