Guns and plants seized at Chilliwack grow-op

More than 600 pot plants were discovered with an estimated street value of $40,000.

Two firearms were seized when police dismantled a marijuana grow-op near an elementary school in the 6900-block of Vedder Road last week.

Chilliwack RCMP Drug Section were tipped off about a possible grow, and a search warrant on Oct. 11 confirmed it, said RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck.

“This information is always a priority for our drug section but even more so when it is so close to a school,” she said.

“Dismantling grow-ops is a primary focus of our three-year Strategic Plan and will continue to be a high priority.”

Two firearms were also seized from the residence.

The address is very close proximity to Sardis elementary school, as well as a daycare centre.

A total of 632 plants was discovered with an estimated street value of $40,000.

A man, 65, and a woman 44, both of Chilliwack, were arrested. Crown is considering several charges.
