One of Kelowna’s pricier neighbourhoods was the focal point of a lot of police activity Tuesday night, when police followed through with a search warrant and found hundreds of pot plants.

Members of the Mounties’ downtown enforcement unit along with general duty members executed a Controlled Drugs and Substances Act search warrant in the 1800 block of Water Street in Kelowna, Wednesday night at approximately 8 p.m.

“As a result of the search 520 marijuana plants in various stages of growth were located in the residence,” said Sgt. Greg Woodcox.

“During the execution of the Search Warrant a 40-year-old  man was located inside and taken into custody. Charges of production of marijuana and possession of marijuana for the Purpose of Trafficking will be forwarded to Crown Counsel for Charge Approval.”

The man , not known to Police, was released on a Promise to Appear for Court for June 2011.
