A lengthy investigation into an alleged marijuana growing operation in Enderby resulted in the arrest of two Lower Mainland men Tuesday.

Rural officers from the Vernon-North Okanagan detachment executed a search warrant at a home on Violet Road in Enderby at 10 a.m. Tuesday after having worked on the file for some time.

“The grow operation was located in several locations on the property,” said RCMP spokesperson Sgt. Dave Evans. “Some were found in the garage, as well as a shed and in the basement of the house.”

The officers seized 2,334 marijuana plants in various stages of growth as well as other related equipment at this property.

Two adult men, both approximately 50 years of age and both providing Surrey addresses, were taken into custody.

“This grow operation is just one more in the ongoing commitment to reducing the illegal production of marijuana in the North Okanagan” said Evans.
