The Cariboo Regional Integrated Marijuana Enforcement (CRIME) Task Force, with the assistance of the Williams Lake RCMP, used a search warrant on the residence located in the 1200 block of Hodgson Road.

An adult male and an adult female were located in the residence and arrested for production of a controlled substance.

The two will appear in court at a later date. Police ask the public to contact the Williams Lake RCMP at 250-392-6211 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477 to report any information they may have in regards to marijuana grow operations.

Since its establishment in September, CRIME has dismantled about 19 marihuana grow operations in and around Williams Lake.
