    POT GROWER ELECTROCUTED

    WINNIPEG -- A 41-year-old man was electrocuted to death Wednesday night in
    a home while apparently tending to his illicit marijuana grow-op, said
    police. "It should serve as a very grave warning to others who are thinking
    about establishing an operation like this," RCMP spokesman Sgt. Steve
    Saunders said yesterday.

    The body of Daniel William Nolin was discovered by a friend about 7 p.m. in
    the basement of a two-storey farmhouse.

    Nolin, who was renting the home, was "in the process of moving a light"
    when the deadly incident occurred, Saunders said.

    Wiring in marijuana grow-ops is often not up to electrical codes, which can
    put the operators at risk, he added.
