by - Story: 53397


Not the kind of green one wants to get caught with on St. Patrick's Day.

Around 4 p.m. Wednesday, officers in the North Okanagan raided a residence in the 7200 block of Dunwaters Drive in the Fintry area off Westside Rd.

RCMP spokesperson, Gord Molendyk, says a 24-year-old man was arrested when they arrived.

“They then searched the house and located 1,725 marijuana plants in the basement, the investigation also discovered a hydro bypass in the house,” says Molendyk.

He says the suspect was arrested and was found to have an outstanding warrant for his arrest.

“He will now be facing additional charges of possession for the purpose and cultivation charges under the Controlled Drug and Substance act. He will also be facing theft of telecommunication charges for the hydro by-pass.”
