Police on grow-op look out


The Whistler-Pemberton RCMP are asking recreational hikers, cyclists and flyers to keep their eyes open for illegal marijuana grow operations in the area.

Anyone who sees anything is asked to report the sighting of any illegal activities, and make note of the GPS coordinates if possible, and forward that information to the RCMP at 604-932-3044 or Crimestoppers.

Last year tips led police to the seizure of several grow operations. Other agencies assisting in the project include the B.C. Forestry Service, B.C. Conservation, Stl’atl’imx Tribal Police and RCMP Air Services.
