Grow-op raid at No. 7 Road home

A Delta Police investigation that began in South Delta led to a home on the 6500 block of No. 7 Road in Richmond on Saturday night, where police busted a marijuana grow op inside a house as a police helicopter flew overhead.

Richmond RCMP Cpl. Sherrdean Turley said more than 300 plants were found in two rooms in the house, but there were no arrests or charges.

Police temporarily cordoned off No. 7 Road and Westminster Highway as investigators descended upon the scene, and two ambulances stood by, according to an area businessman.

Delta Police spokesperson Const. Ciaran Feenan said Delta Police were executing a search warrant at the home, but when police discovered the grow-op, they called Richmond Mounties to take over the investigation.

He said the Delta Police investigation is ongoing, and declined to indicate what it involves.
