A 52-year-old man is facing charges after Chilliwack RCMP discovered a marijuana grow operation in a Vedder Crossing business.
Police, acting on “multiple complaints from neighboring businesses and customers regarding the smell of marijuana,” searched the 5616 Vedder Road building on Monday.
Inside they found a total of 165 marijuana plants, along with equipment used to produce marijuana. A check with Health Canada indicated the location was not licensed to produce marijuana.
Chilliwack municipal bylaws and the electrical safety inspector attended due to concerns regarding the electrical wiring located inside the business.
A 52-year-old male was arrested after he was seen coming and going from the business. The RCMP continues to gather evidence in relation to this investigation.
