July 08, 2013 - 3:46 PM

KAMLOOPS - RCMP have arrested three men following a grow-op bust today near Lac Du Bois.

Over 200 plants have been seized along with the arrest of three men aged between their 50s and 60s, two from Kamloops and one from Pinantan Lake.

RCMP attended the remote location about 25 km northwest of Kamloops on Lac Du Bois Road this morning using quads.

Two men were seen lugging plastic jugs to the grow-op before a third man was found tending the crops.

Police seized the plants, found in early growth stages, along with two quads, a trailer and a pick-up truck, all contributing to the alleged illegal activity.

The men are expected to be released on a promise to appear in court.
