With files from the Nakusp RCMP



Mysterious call leads RCMP to Edgewood grow op.

A call put into 911 on November 9 was abandoned by the caller, but not the police. RCMP followed up the unfinished call by visiting the address that was associated with the call, and although they didn’t find anyone there, the officers did see what looked like evidence of a grow op. The next day, they returned and seized 1,700 plants, as well as other items for evidence.



Throwing glass in houses


Police were called to a house on 7th Avenue in Nakusp where a man had reportedly been hit over the head by a number of glass objects. The man was taken to hospital for treatment of injuries to his head and hand, and a 33-year-old woman was arrested for assault with a weapon. Alcohol was a factor in the assault.
