Nanaimo RCMP Bust Five Grow Ops

Green Team Shut Down Five Grows Today

The Nanaimo Green team successfully hit five separate residences containing marihuana grow ops this morning and each residence and grow is believed to be linked to one another.

The search warrants carried out at approximately 10:00 AM this morning involved upwards of 40 police officers from the Nanaimo RCMP Detachment . The homes searched were located in the 600-700 block of Terminal Ave, 100 block of Milton St and the 100 block of Watkins St. Several of the homes searched contained very sophisticated bunkers concealed underneath work shops and rooms in the homes.

No problems were encountered upon entry and in total six adults , three males and three females were taken into custody. There is no word on what charges are being recommended against those taken into custody and it is unknown if additional persons are being sought in connection with the raids. More information will be released once the homes have been cleared and the officers have debriefed on the searches.
