Search warrant leads to drug seizure

Vernon RCMP were at a home Wednesday in the 2400 block of 15th Street

Drugs have been seized from a Vernon home.

RCMP executed a search warrant Wednesday on a residence in the 2400 block of 15th Street, near Vernon Secondary School.

More than 10 kilograms of marijuana, as well as numerous other items used in the production of marijuana, were seized.

The location of this grow-op was particularly concerning because it is a residential area and very close to a school,” said Const. Jocelyn Noseworthy.

The investigation continues and no charges have been laid at this time.
