Police seized a significant amount of marijuana and marijuana derivatives.

  • Nov. 27, 2015 7:00 p.m.

Mission RCMP executed two search warrants in the Deroche area on Nov. 25, in relation to the production and sale of marijuana.

The RCMP were acting on on complaints from the public, and an investigation into the illegal production and sale of marijuana was initiated earlier this year.

The investigation revealed that marijuana and marijuana derivatives were being illegally produced at the residential property and sold at a commercial premise on Lougheed Highway which was being operated as a marijuana dispensary.

Search warrants were obtained and executed at both the commercial and residential properties.

Police seized a significant amount of marijuana and marijuana derivatives, including a quantity of “shatter”. One adult man and one adult woman were arrested in relation to the illegal production and sale of a controlled substance.  They have since been released from custody and charges against them are pending.
