Police say a Richmond couple bought a three-storey house on a four-hectare property near Clearwater a year ago for the sole purpose of growing marijuana.
Clearwater RCMP officials say they executed a search warrant on the property on Thursday, netting more than 1,300 marijuana plants on site. Police also found 8 kilograms of dried bud.
Police say the rural property, located in a rural area on Clearwater Valley Road, had a three-storey house and small shed, all of which were used to for the grow-op. In addition, police say the couple also built an additional outbuilding to increase production capacity.
The suspects have been released and will appear in court on Dec. 15, police say.
