A Valleyview man has been given a $10,000 fine and two-year conditional sentence for his involvement in a major marijuana grow op.
Bradley Besler plead guilty to charges of production and possession for the purpose of trafficking after nearly three-thousand plants were seized from a rural home in September 2012.
The indoor/outdoor facility was equipped with high intensity lights, a diesel generator, and and odour filtration system.
The bust was part of an investigation by the RCMP’s Green Team, focusing on rural outdoor grow ops.
Darren Besler and Lukas Hopkins were also arrested at the scene, but had their charges dropped this week.
