CrimeStopper... or starter?

A former Okanagan CrimeStoppers president has found himself on the wrong side of the law.

Dino Cabalfin, who assumed the role of board president of Central Okanagan CrimeStoppers in 2014, has been charged with production of a controlled substance, allegedly stemming from a marijuana grow op.

Cabalfin first became a member of the board in 2011 and stepped down when his term as president expired in  2015.

According to police, a home in Kelowna was raided in mid-April and, as a result, the production charge was recommended.

Charges were sworn against Cabalfin and co-accused Aurea Villanueva on Aug. 15. The pair are scheduled to make their first court appearance Sept. 26.

The board of directors works at arm's length with the working operations of CrimeStoppers.

Current president Timothy Lynch, who declined to comment on Cabalfin, says the board is in charge of building awareness of the CrimeStoppers program and raising funds, which provide money for tips.

Presidents serve a one-year term.
