A large bunker style grow operation was taken down by North Okanagan RCMP this morning.

When police arrived they discovered a man on the property and a two level confined space concrete bunker with a multiple stage growing operation. Officers seized 4608 plants.

 

Half the operation was powered by a hydro connection while the rest was serviced using a generator. As part of their ongoing investigation, police will try to find out where the generator came from.

 

The residence located in the 1800 block of Hwy. 6 in the Cherryville area was taken down in a coordinated effort by officers from the North Okanagan Detachment, Air Services Division and the Emergency Response Team from the Lower Main Land who are trained to search confined spaces.

 

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