TWO MEN face drug trafficking charges after Dease Lake RCMP executed a search warrant on a residence on the Iskut First Nations Reserve July 2.

The 56-year-old and 41-year-old were arrested and police found more than 80 marijuana rolled cigarette joints ready for distribution, an amount of hash, prescription drugs and other drug paraphernalia and equipment in their residence, said police in a release.

Both males were later released with a Promise to Appear in court and face charges of Possession of a Controlled Substance and Possession of a Controlled Substance for the purpose of Trafficking, said police.

A third male was located hiding under a bed. He was identified and police discovered he had a warrant for his arrest out of the Yukon Territories for Failing to Appear in Court.

The 24-year-old male was held in custody and has been transferred back to the Yukon to address his charges.

Dease Lake RCMP are committed to the safety of their community and identifying individuals trafficking drugs is a main priority based on concerns reported by the community.

RCMP are asking anyone with information in relation to drug trafficking or any other criminal offence that poses a risk to the community, to contact the Dease Lake RCMP at 250-771-4111.
