Four people were arrested Saturday night after RCMP executed a search warrant at a Pass Creek home and uncovered a sophisticated marijuana growing operation.
The residence, located on Ladybird Creek Forest Service Road in Pass Creek, had 295 marijuana plants and 12 pounds of bud marijuana ready for distribution, according to Cpl. Darryl Orr of the Kootenay Boundary Regional RCMP.
Two women and two men were arrested without incident and are facing charges of production of marijuana and possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking.
“The Castlegar RCMP remain committed to the elimination of marijuana growing operations, and other illegal activities in our communities,” Orr said.
