The execution of three search warrants has yielded three arrests and the seizure of nearly 2,000 marijuana plants by the Shawnigan Lake RCMP.
Mounties searched a property in the 4800-block of Goldstream Heights Drive on May 30, uncovering “an extensive 1,500 marijuana plant grow operation,” said a press release issued Friday but the Shawnigan detachment.
“As a result of the investigation a second residence on the property was also searched locating further marijuana bud, score sheets, and a small amount of monies seized,” police said.
A 37-year-old man was arrested at that location.
The two searches gave cause to execute a third search warrant in the 4800-block of Goldstream Heights Drive on June 13.
While there police uncovered a 477-plant grow operation.
A man and a woman were both arrested without incident.
“Shawnigan Lake RCMP are recommending charges under the Controlled Drugs and Substance Act on the three individuals,” said the release.
