KELOWNA – The former president of Central Okanagan Crime Stoppers has been charged with illegally growing marijuana.

Dino Cabalfin became involved with Crime Stoppers in 2011 and was elected to president of the board in 2014. He served as president for one year and left the organization in 2015, according to current president Timothy Lynch.

Crime Stoppers is a non-profit organization that collects anonymous information about criminal activity.

“My understanding is that after he finished his term he was no longer sitting on the board," he said.

Cabalfin and his co-accused Aurea Villanueva have each been charged with production of a controlled substance and although not present in court today, Sept. 26, made their first appearance through legal counsel.

Court documents say they are charged with illegally growing marijuana and arrested in April.

Cabalfin’s LinkedIn profile says he is also the current president and CEO of Armada Partners Inc., the former director of Vancouver Career College, a retired PGA of America member and former head coach of the Immaculata Mustangs High School golf team.

His next court appearance is scheduled for mid-October.
