BC Hydro is conducting an internal investigation into whether a group of workers in at least five B.C. cities, including Coquitlam, supplied power to illegal marijuana grow-ops.
BC Hydro spokeswoman Simi Heer confirmed an internal investigation is underway, but has provided no specific details.
"We are conducting a thorough, internal investigation into the conduct of a small number of employees who appear to have been involved in the theft of BC Hydro equipment or other activities that would constitute a violation of our Code of Conduct," she said in an e-mail.
"This is an internal personnel matter at the moment and we cannot provide further information at this time."
The workers under investigation are from Surrey and Coquitlam. There are also workers on leave from Prince George, Westbank and Campbell River.
