A 54-year-old man is facing charges stemming from a residential drug bust on Nov. 24.

On that day, Salmon Arm RCMP Detachment executed a search warrant for drugs at a residence located on the 1700 block of 18th Avenue SE. Police located a marijuana grow operation at the residence with a large number of plants and seized 2.5 kilograms of dried marijuana. Police had to call for the assistance of BC Hydro to cut the power to the residence in order to safely process the scene as a electrical bypass was located and the site was deemed hazardous. The Salmon Arm resident was arrested at the scene and criminal charges are pending.
