Cherryville residence searched

At the request of an absentee landlord residing in Alberta, RCMP entered a vacant residence in the 100 block of Hammond Road in Cherryville and discovered the remnants of a large marijuana grow operation.

No plants were located but all the associated grow equipment was still on site.

“At any given time, this detachment has multiple marijuana grow investigations on the go,” said Lumby RCMP Cpl. Henry Proce.

“We encourage whatever tips or information the public can provide to initiate or further an investigation. If you have information don’t hesitate to give us a call.

“The information you provide may be the last piece of the puzzle that enables us to obtain a search warrant, seize the drugs and make arrests.”
