RCMP in Squamish have busted a huge operation involved with the production of an illegal cannabis extract.
A search warrant was executed Friday at a property in the Upper Squamish Valley, the site of a sophisticated 1,500-plant Cannabis Cultivation and Butane Honey Oil operation.
Investigators located a barn containing the plants and a dangerous, large — and illegal — organic solvent operation with high-end equipment.
BC Hydro officials were also on hand to identify a full electrical diversion specifically designed to steal electricity to power the large scale operation.
A Squamish man was located and arrested on the property and later released, pending further investigation.
