A Lake Country couple is facing recommended charges of production of a controlled substance and theft of Hydro electricity after a large marijuana grow operation was taken down Saturday.
As a result of investigation, RCMP officers executed the search warrant on the residence in the 9700 block of Santina Road.
Police arrested a 34-year-old male and female at the residence after locating almost 1,200 marijuana plants in a sophisticated two-room basement operation.
An illegal Hydro electrical bypass was also discovered inside the residence.
The two suspects were later released on a promise to appear in court at a later date to face the drug and Hydro theft charges.
