Police bust Silver Creek grow-op

Over 1,100 mature marijuana plants were seized on property

Hope RCMP has shut down a marijuana grow operation in an unoccupied house in Silver Creek.

After being alerted by BC Hydro about suspected hydro theft, members of the Chilliwack RCMP Crime Reduction Unit, Lower Mainland Emergency Response Team and police dog service assisted Hope RCMP with the execution of a search warrant in the 6100 block of Yale Road on Thursday.

Upon arrival, police found marijuana growing inside the basement and an exterior modular building. Police seized 1,122 nearly mature plants worth a street value of approximately $200,000, 31 lights with 1,000 watt bulbs, a hydro bypass and other grow-op equipment.

“It wasn’t a very sophisticated grow in the sense that it wasn’t as put together as what we’ve seen in other organized grow-ops,” said Staff Sgt. Suki Manj. “It appeared this wasn’t a place that was being lived in on a full-time basis.”

Police do not have any suspects at this time. Anyone with information is asked to contact Hope RCMP at 604-869-7750 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
