In the evening hours of October 24, 2012 members of the Prince Rupert RCMP General Investigation and Crime Reduction Units executed a search warrant in the 1300 block of Overlook Street.
RCMP located a marijuana grow operation and seized approximately 135 healthy and mature marijuana plants, many of which were close to being harvested. Police also seized equipment used in the cultivation of marijuana.
A male was taken into custody and later released as the investigation continues. This is the second search warrant executed this month that has led to the discovery of marihuana grow operations in Prince Rupert.
Police want to remind the public of the dangers of marihuana grow operations and that any suspicious activities observed in their neighborhood be reported to the Prince Rupert RCMP (250) 627-0764 or CRIMESTOPPERS at 1-800-222-8477.
