On the morning of Thursday, Sept. 12, RCMP busted a marijuana grow operation on Pinchi Road near Fort St. James.

After an investigation of the property, RCMP had been issued a search warrant, and in the process of executing the warrant, found the 67 marijuana plants as well as four pounds of dried marijuana.

One adult male was taken into custody by the RCMP and has since been released on a promise to appear in court.

RCMP are recommending charges of cultivation of a narcotic and possession of a narcotic to the Crown.

RCMP estimate the plants would have produced around the equivalent of 6,700 joints.
