Grow-op discovered on Knight Street

Knight Street has reopened to traffic after several people were forced out of the now-suspected drug house and taken in for questioning.

After a 9-1-1 call about suspicious activity at the house in the 5800 block of Knight Street at around 12:30 a.m. Friday, VPD Emergency Response Team members and police negotiators responded and attempted to contact the occupants inside the home.

After nearly nine hours of
refusing to come out as directed, all residents were safely taken out of the house and into custody for questioning. No one was injured. 

During a search of the residence, evidence of a grow operation was discovered. Occupants of an adjacent home were also evacuated.

Vancouver Police are continuing their investigation. No one has been charged at this stage.
