Grow op robbed
As police were investigating an attempted break and enter at a licensed medicinal marijuana grow operation around 3:10 a.m., March 8, they came across a suspicious vehicle backing into a residence in the 14200 block of Kontney Road, followed by four masked males fleeing, and escaping police.
When Mounties entered the home to check on the occupants’ well-being, they found a 62-year-old resident and a marijuana grow operation. The uninjured man told police he was robbed by a masked individual.
Police returned to the property later in the day with a search warrant for the grow op and are continuing to investigate.
The two break-ins have not been linked, said RCMP Sgt. Miriam Dickson.
