Cops raid dope bunker

In a coordinated effort early this (Wednesday) morning, officers from the North Okanagan Detachment, Air Services Division and the Emergency Response Team (ERT) from the Lower Mailand raided a residence in the 1800 block of Hwy 6 in the Cherryville area.

The property was searched and the officers located one male suspect on the property.

They found a two level concrete bunker with a multiple stage growing operation.

Half of this operation was being powered by generator; the other half was being powered by a hydro connection.

The concrete bunker was secured and the air quality of the area was checked by the (ERT) members before this very sophisticated grow operation was able to be dismantled. Officers have seized 4,608 plants.

As part of this ongoing investigation they are looking into the origin of the generator.

The 33-year-old male suspect from the Kelowna area is expected to face charges of Production, and Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking.

The dismantling of this grow operation is part of the continuing commitment to our Strategic Priorities for the region in dealing with the production of marijuana.
