The Prince Rupert RCMP executed a search warrant on a house in the 800 block of Comox Avenue.

In the evening hours of Oct. 2, 2012 investigators from the Prince Rupert General Investigation Section and Crime Reduction Unit executed a search warrant under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act in the 800 block of Comox Avenue in Prince Rupert.

Police located a multistage marijuana grow operation within the residence which was in the early stages of growth.  A female resident was taken into custody and later released.  The investigation continues into this matter.

Police want to remind the public that these grow operations are not normally wired by an electrician and as such pose a serious risk for a fire.  Police ask that citizens report any properties they feel are suspicious to police or to CRIMESTOPPERS at 1-800-222-8477.
