Agassiz RCMP take down grow-op

A small number of marijuana plants, along with a sizeable amount dried bud, were seized from an Agassiz property on Feb. 19. Agassiz RCMP said they executed a search warrant on a property in the 2000 block of Ashton Road, and found 10 plants. However, they found that the outbuilding used to grow the marijuana was divided into two rooms used exclusively for that purpose.

In addition to the plants, police found a cache of dried marijuana bud that would be worth more than $6,000.

"Grow operations remain a focus of the Agassiz RCMP as outlined in the Upper Fraser Valley Strategic Plan," said Cst. Tracy Wolbeck.  "This is marihuana that will now be destroyed instead of hitting our streets."

If you have any information regarding grow-ops in your neighbourhood, you are asked to contact the Agassiz RCMP at 604-796-2211.
