The Chestermere RCMP Detachment with the assistance of the Green Team South Section executed a search warrant at a home in the Marina Drive area.

On Sunday morning around 9, members of the Chestermere RCMP arrived at the residence to check on an  alarm. A marijuana grow op was discovered. A search warrant was executed a few hours later.

Located in the basement was a soil based hydro-ponic grow-op with approximately 236 marijuana plants  worth nearly 300-thousand dollars. The investigation will continue to confirm the identity of the renter for potential charges.

This has been the fourth marijuana grow op warrant execution in Chestermere in 2011.
