Marijuana grow-op may be biggest uncovered in B.C. [CAN]

Marijuana grow-op may be biggest uncovered in B.C.
May 28, 2010 - globaltvbc.com

VANCOUVER — A massive marijuana-growing operation raided Thursday may be the biggest yet uncovered in British Columbia, RCMP in Prince George said Friday.

The grow-op had 18,000 plants in 20 greenhouses set up on a rural property purchased just last fall "solely for purpose of the production of marijuana," Const. Lesley Smith said. "I know it is one of the largest ever in B.C."

Three men were taken into custody and are expected to face drug charges. One is from Vancouver and the other two claim to be from Quebec, Smith said.

But she said the tents set up on the property for the workers indicate a larger crew was based at the grow-op than the three men arrested.

She said local investigators believe the grow-op is linked to others around B.C.

"Every marijuana grow-op is linked to an organized crime group," she said, though investigators have not yet determined the gang behind this grow-op.

Prince George is nearly 800 kilometres north of Vancouver.

Police have been uncovering increasingly larger and more sophisticated grow-ops — often in remote areas accessible only by logging road.

Just last week, RCMP in Quesnel, B.C., about 120 kilometres south of Prince George, announced a raid on their biggest grow-op targeted yet —10,000 plants on a remote rural property about two hours northwest of Quesnel and accessible by logging roads.

Prince George investigators estimated the pot from their haul to be worth more than $2 million.

The elaborate setup was found on a rural property in the Eaglett Lake area, about 40 kilometres east of Prince George.

The greenhouses had two industrial size heaters and two power generators, which police also seized.

"The property was being used solely for the production of marijuana and a number of tents were located to house the individuals tending to the crops," Smith said.

Two of the suspects were arrested at the scene and the third man was caught after being tracked down by the dog team. All three were expected to appear in court Friday.

Prince George is nearly 800 kilometres north of Vancouver.
