On Jan. 13, Comox Valley RCMP Drug Section and General Investigation Section executed three search warrants in relation to licenced medicinal marijuana grow operations in the Comox Valley.

Warrants were executed at a residence in Courtenay and at licenced marijuana operations in both Cumberland and Black Creek.

A total of 423 plants were seized, as well as several vehicles including a motorhome, three motorcycles, a snowmobile, two automobiles and a boat, which are believed to have been purchased with proceeds of crime.

“Public safety continues to be a top priority for the Comox Valley RCMP. Our officers invest a great deal of time and effort in reducing the flow of illegal substances in our community,” said Inspector Tim Walton, Officer in charge of the Comox Valley RCMP.  “When we receive information that someone is operating outside of the parameters of their licence we will continue to investigate and take enforcement action.”

Four individuals from the Comox Valley have been arrested, and charges including possession for the purpose of trafficking are being considered.
