Electricity theft reveals grow op

West Kelowna RCMP executed a search warrant on July 19 for a house in the 2500 block of Boucherie Road in West Kelowna.

What the police found was a sophisticated marijuana growing operation and an illegal electrical bypass.

Police seized 731 mature pot plants and $2,500 in cash.

A 31-year-old male was found in the residence and is believed to be the tenant and caretaker of the illegal agricultural operation.

That male was arrested and will be appearing in court to face recommended charges of production of a controlled substance (marijuana) and theft of electricity.
