KAMLOOPS - A man charged in connection with a massive drug bust in Kamloops will be spending the foreseeable future behind bars. 

Dustin Sigouin, who is in custody, pleaded guilty to three counts of trafficking a controlled substance in Kamloops Supreme Court today, June 20, and is expected to be sentenced later this month.

Crown prosecutors are asking for a two-and-a-half year sentence.

Sigouin was charged along with 12 other people in July 2015 after a five-month long RCMP investigation came to an end. 

It led to 45 charges against the suspects and a seizure of a large amount of drugs including 500 fentanyl tablets. 

Court heard today that Sigouin has a lengthy history, with 90 convictions on his record since 1989.
