Grow op discovered in Old Massett

  • Apr. 4, 2011 4:00 p.m.

Four people from Old Massett will be appearing in provincial court to face drug charges following the Masset RCMP’s discovery of a marijuana grow operation. Sgt. Grant MacDonald said police found the grow-op after making a routine visit to an Old Massett residence late on Friday night (April 1) for a court-imposed curfew check on an adult male. This is the third grow-op the Masset detachment has found and dismantled in the past seven months. The other two were located in Port Clements and in a rural area of Graham Island. Police obtained a search warrant and returned to the residence later that night, Sgt. MacDonald said. They seized 16 marijuana plants in varying stages of growth, 65 grams of dried marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Police arrested two adult males, one adult female and one female youth at the scene, Sgt. MacDonald said. All are facing various charges under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, and are scheduled to appear in Masset provincial court in October. The Masset RCMP is continuing their investigation in this case. Sgt. MacDonald said anyone with information about the distribution of illegal drugs is welcome to contact the RCMP at 626-3991 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477, or online at www.bccrimestoppers.com
