How to tell if your neighbour has a grow-op

RCMP have released a list of “indicators” of marijuana grow-ops after netting nearly 500 marijuana plants at a property in Lake Echo.

RCMP have released a list of “indicators” of marijuana grow-ops after netting nearly 500 marijuana plants at a property in Lake Echo.

RCMP and members of Halifax Regional Police arrested a 45-year old man at a property on Lakefront Drive last Friday.

Police found the marijuana plants, five pounds of dried marijuana, as well as grow equipment.

Staff Sgt. Roddie Macdonald said police found an illegal electrical bypass at the residence — tampering which created a “very hazardous situation” for those inside the property.

Macdonald said electrical tampering is a common characteristic of grow-ops, with some growers with little knowledge or training jury-rigging systems to suit their needs.

But Macdonald cautioned citizens against taking any investigative actions themselves. Instead, he recommended contacting police with any concerns.

“Contact your local RCMP office, city police or town police and tell them about your concerns for them to look into it,” he said.
