A 35-year-old Passmore man faces charges after RCMP took down a grow op on a property in the 3900 block of Highway 6 last week.
When members of the Slocan Lake and Nakusp detachment executed a search warrant, they found about 685 pot plants and several drying racks containing over 5½ lbs of bud. Inside the home, police found smaller amounts of bud, an electronic scale, and packaging materials.
The suspect has been charged with production and possession for the purpose of trafficking. He was later released on $2,000 bail and conditions not to possess weapons or use drugs.
He’ll be back in court January 10 in Nelson.
