A defective tail light proved costly for a 46-year-old West Kelowna man after RCMP stopped his car and then noticed a strong smell of marijuana.
The traffic stop happened Wednesday morning, when police pulled over a Lexus 400 that was travelling on Highway 97 near Sexsmith Road. When officers searched the car, they found three coolers containing over 1600 clones.
According to RCMP, these clones are commonly used in the cultivation of marijuana and are typically clippings from a mature female plant that has been selected for its desirable characteristics. The clones are rooted and transplanted in order to skip the seeding process.
The driver of the vehicle now faces potential charges of Possession of a Controlled Substance.
