RCMP say a Lake Country man could be facing charges after a grow operation was searched yesterday afternoon.

The warrant was executed on a home and outbuilding on the 12000 block of Oceola Road in Lake Country.

Police say they located an elaborate marijuana grow operation inside the outbuilding as well as a hydro bypass. More than 300 grams of dried marijuana were seized. No one was home during the search and Mounties say it appears the marijuana had already been harvested. 

A 58-year-old man faces potential charges of theft of electricty, production of a controlled substance and possession for the purpose of trafficking.
