Salmon Arm RCMP take down marijuana grow op in Blind Bay

Salmon Arm RCMP have taken down their second marijuana grow op in as many days this week.

Following their dismantling of a "massive" marijuana grow operation in Tappen on Wednesday, members of the Sicamous RCMP detachment were over in Blind Bay on Thursday, where they executed a warrant in the 2600 block of Blind Bay Crescent. The search yielded a marijuana grow of 703 plants in various stages of growth.

Salmon Arm Staff Sgt. Kevin Keane says the operation was being powered by electricity stolen through a hydro bypass. He says the electrical system was found to be unsafe, and power to the property was shut off.

The investigation is ongoing.
