The Masset RCMP located and dismantled a marijuana grow operation in Port Clements Thursday (March 3). Sgt. Grant MacDonald said police officers had gone to a house in Port looking for someone who was wanted on a warrant. Police ended up arresting a woman at the scene and their subsequent search resulted in the seizure of 34 marijuana plants in varying stages of growth. Police later released the woman unconditionally, Sgt. MacDonald said, but are still looking for the person being sought on warrant. The RCMP is continuing its investigation into this case, he said. Anyone with any information about marijuana grow ops or the illegal distribution of drugs can contact the Masset detachment at 626-3991 or call Crimestoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.bccrimestoppers.com This latest discovery and seizure of marijuana plants is part of the Masset RCMP’s crime reduction efforts focused on street-level crime, crime hotspots and prolific drug and alcohol offenders, Sgt. MacDonald said.
