On February 15, members of the Castlegar Crime Reduction Unit executed a search warrant issued under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act at a residence located on McDaniels Road in Pass Creek, B.C. Two adults aged 52 and 32 years were arrested at the residence without incident.

A search of the residence revealed a large sophisticated Marihuana growing operation in the basement of the residence containing 345 Marihuana plants along with the associated growing equipment. Hashish and Marihuana oil were also located in the residence along with “70 points” or 7 grams of Crystal Methamphetamine. The conservative value of the drugs seized is estimated at $345,000.

The two adults were released on court compelling documents at the conclusion of the search. Charges of Production of Marihuana, Possession of Marihuana for the Purpose of Trafficking, and Possession of Methamphetamine for the purpose of Trafficking are being recommended by police.

The Castlegar Crime Reduction Unit continues to focus on illegal drug activity within the City of Castlegar to ensure a safe community. If you have any information on illegal drug activity please contact the RCMP or anonymously at Crime Stoppers.
