RCMP bust another large grow-op in Agassiz

Another marijuana grow-op busted by RCMP in Agassiz Friday.

More than 1,100 marijuana plants and 10 pounds of dried marijuana was found as Agassiz RCMP officers and Emergency Response Team executed a search warrant at a property in the 6200-block Golf Road.

Police estimated the street value of the seized marijuana at $25,000, and believe the grow operation could produce $750,000 worth of marijuana each year.

“This is our second largAgassiz grow op buste grow-op bust in less than a month,” said Sgt. Stu Falebrinze, the new officer in charge of the Agassiz RCMP.

“It has been, and will continue to be, a priority for us to work to eliminate this vice in our community.”

Four men were taken into custody during the bust, and Crown will be assessing possible charges of production of a controlled substance, and possession for trafficking purposes.

All four men were released on a promise to appear in court at a later date.

Anyone with information about grow-ops in their area are asked to call the Agassiz RCMP at 604-796-2211 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
