Two marijuana grow ops in the Spences Bridge area kept the Lytton RCMP busy in the first two weeks of October. Charges are pending as a result of a search warrant at a Spences Bridge residence executed on Oct. 5 followed by the dismantling of a large outdoor grow op on crown land near the Goldpan Provincial Park.

On Saturday, Oct. 5, RCMP executed a search warrant that evening at a residence in the 3000 block of Riverview Ave. in Spences Bridge. RCMP officers seized 158 marijuana plants at different stages of growth, 15 pounds of processed and packaged marijuana, 15 pounds of processed unpacked marijuana and $1,500 cash. Investigators anticipate forwarding evidence to support charges of Production and Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking against a 45 years old Spences Bridge man.

On Oct. 12, RCMP located a large outdoor marijuana grow op on crown land near the Goldpan Provincial Park just south of Spences Bridge. A total of 742 plants were located and seized. No charges have been laid with respect to the outdoor grow op.
