KAMLOOPS - Two men have pleaded guilty in connection to a massive Kamloops drug bust last summer.
Devon Black and Patrick Radies appeared in Kamloops Supreme Court today, July 4. They're both charged with several counts of trafficking meth dating back to 2014.
Charges were laid against 13 people last year after a months-long RCMP investigation.
Court heard last month that undercover officers purchased meth from Black on several different occasions. They also met up with Radies at the Star Lodge on Columbia Street to purchase drugs.
Black introduced the officers to Radies, who introduced them to Sigouin, his supplier. Sigouin was described in court as a mid-level drug dealer.
Radies, Black and Dustin Sigouin worked together in a dial-a-dope operation. Sigouin pleaded guilty to his trafficking charges last month, and has been sentenced to spend less than two years behind bars.
Black and Radies are expected to be sentenced later this month.
