Shawnigan Lake RCMP seized 150 marijuana plants from a remote setting in the Mill BayMalahat area last week.
"The plants were healthy and ranged from three feet to 7 1 feet /2 in height," said detachment spokesman Cpl. Dave Mackenzie.
"The plants were budding and as such would have soon been scheduled for harvesting by the owners had they not been seized by the police."
Anyone with information about the grow-op or any other criminal activity in the South End area is asked to call Shawnigan Lake RCMP at 250-743-5514 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
