Police investigate near the scene of an apparent marijuana grow-op in South Surrey.

Two apprehended, as dog team searches Pacific Highway

Police are at the scene with a dog team on Pacific Highway, about two blocks from where a booby-trapped "drug house" was found Oct. 6.

A police dog unit and officers with the Emergency Response Team surrounded a home near 26 Avenue and 176 Street in South Surrey Tuesday, following a report of possible weapons in the residence.

Police closed 176 Street to traffic between 24 and 32 avenues around 11 a.m. to investigate, after receiving a call about a possible home invasion. The busy thoroughfare was reopened about an hour later.

While police did not locate any weapons in the home – which has driveway access from 26 Avenue – they did find a small marijuana grow operation.

Two Surrey residents – a 42-year-old male and a 59-year-old female – were arrested at the scene, and investigation is ongoing.

The house is just two blocks from where police discovered an apparent drug lab on Oct. 6. During a search of that home, police found several dozen “covertly and indiscriminately” placed booby traps. A 58-year-old man was arrested in connection with that discovery.
