Salmon Arm RCMP executed a search warrant under the Cannabis Act in Sorrento, B.C. on Tuesday at an unlicensed cannabis growing operation, a BC RCMP spokesperson says.
Two men were arrested and released for court in the near future, E Division senior media relations officer Staff Sergeant Janelle Shoihet tells Mugglehead in an email.
Confirmation of the enforcement comes amid reports of increased police presence in the region, and rumours in the community that a number of warrants against growers are incoming.
Police seized over 1,600 cannabis plants and Canadian currency, Staff Sergeant Shoihet says.
“I am not aware of any planned enforcement in the upcoming days,” she said. “However as you know we may not be notified in advance of such enforcement taking place.”
