Courtenay man arrested in Qualicum Beach pot bust

A Courtenay man arrested Feb. 25 in Qualicum Beach as Oceanside RCMP discovered what they call a sophisticated marijuana grow-op with about 300 plants.

The RCMP are recommending that Crown counsel charge the man and another man from Parksville with production, possession for the purpose of trafficking and theft of electricity. Both unidentified men have been released to appear in Nanaimo court at a later date.
