Three men were in a Fort St. James court on Wednesday facing charges for the cultivation of drugs for the purpose of trafficking.

The men were arrested after a federal warrant was executed on Tuesday morning at a residence on Braeside Road.

Federal RCMP members, along with local members attended the residence where over 4,000 marijuana plants were seized.

Staff-sergeant Dave Beach with the Vanderhoof RCMP detachment said the drug bust was too large for his detachment to deal with and therefore resources from the federal RCMP were called in.

Constable Michael McLaughlin, a Media Relations Officer with RCMP Federal Criminal Operations said the incident is part of a larger file and therefore he couldn’t confirm any details at this point.
