Two arrested for Hot Springs Road grow op

District sending bill for policing costs

Two locals are facing drug-related charges, and hefty fines, after a marijuana grow op was discovered in their garage.

Agassiz RCMP executed a search warrant in the 3100 block of Hot Springs Road last Friday, with assistance from the Chilliwack RCMP Crime Reduction Unit and police dog services.

Police reportedly found 117 plants inside a large utility trailer, parked inside the detached garage. They pulled out the trailer and seized it as offence-related property.

They also seized the plants, which were close to maturity, and a half pound of dried marijuana bud found inside a drying room in the garage.

A 33-year-old woman, who lives at the residence, was arrested without incident during the search. A 53-year-old man, who also lives at the residence, turned himself in on October 3.

Both face charges of production of a controlled substance and possession for the purposed of trafficking.

The couple was released on a promise to appear in court at a later date.

“The power has been cut to the property by BC Hydro,” said Corporal Dwayne Farlin.  “The District of Kent is also preparing a bill for the property owners for policing and fire costs in excess of $1,700.”
