A bailiff discovered more than he expected when he went to change the locks on a Vernon home foreclosure.

On Tuesday, the bailiff found a large marijuana grow operation in the 900 block of Mt. Grady Road on Middleton Mountain.

“The bailiff discovered the large grow operation in the basement of the home, and he called police to report the find,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

Officers from the Vernon detachment were able to get a search warrant under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA).

The search of the home located 941 marijuana plants.

No arrests were made at the residence and police officers are continuing this investigation.
