A 32-year-old Summerland woman was arrested earlier this month at an alleged marijuana grow-op in Kelowna.

RCMP said in a press release the woman was discovered Oct. 7 inside a home on Kloppenburg Road where 721 marijuana plants were seized, along with cash, dried marijuana and paraphernalia.

The woman was released on a promise to appear and faces possible charges of production of a controlled substance and possession for the purpose of trafficking. RCMP took down an alleged grow-op at a neighbouring house on Sept. 26 and seized 471 marijuana plants.

It was during that first bust, according to the release, that the second home where the Summerland woman was arrested came to the attention of police.
