Over 3,800 marihuana plants were seized on Tuesday, Oct. 8 in Edgewood, B.C. The large grow op, its plants ranging in size from seedlings to two feet in height, was detected by police who received information that a hydro bypass was in place in the 8900 block of Highway 6 in Edgewood. The RCMP would not say how they came to be aware of the bypass.

At the time of the search, there was no one on the property, but police say there was evidence that the grow was being tended on a regular basis.
