RCMP seek perpetrators behind Lands End grow-op
Dec 21 2011
Sidney/North Saanich RCMP are looking for the people responsible for a large marijuana grow-op discovered last week.
RCMP searched a residence on the 1200 block of Lands End Road Friday morning, said RCMP spokesman Cpl. Chris Swain.
Four rooms inside the house were filled with more than 300 plants.
The house was completely devoid of furniture and police believe it was being used solely as a grow-op, Swain said.
Police seized the plants and growing equipment.
Police determined the residents were stealing electricity and had bypassed the hydro meter to funnel abnormal amounts of electricity into the home.
