Mounties make $220K Pemberton pot bust 

After receiving a tip from a concerned resident, the Whistler-Pemberton RCMP launched an investigation into an alleged grow operation on the 1400 block of Lupin Road in Pemberton.

Both the Vancouver RCMP and Tribal Police were involved in the investigation.

In the late evening of Saturday, Nov. 13, the RCMP executed a search warrant on the home and discovered a large scale operation with over 340 plants. One of the two males in the residence attempted to flee the scene, but was caught by officers.

Two males have been charged, a 31 year old from Cloverdale and a 29 year old from Surrey. Both were charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance and Production of a Controlled Substance, and will make their first court appearance on Jan. 20, 2005 in Pemberton Provincial Court.

Names will be released once the charges are formalized.
