Three men, who were charged in connection with a large drug bust on Abel Lake on June 17, 2015, have been ordered to stand trial, following a preliminary inquiry at 100 Mile House provincial court on Nov. 4.

Richard Poudrier, Ryan Delorme and Shawn Perkins are facing charges of production of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.

Poudrier is also facing firearm related charges.

The date for the trial will be set on Dec. 13.

According to the June 18 police report, the RCMP executed a search warrant under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act at the residence just before 10 a.m.

Police discovered a large marijuana grow operation and a small lab for the manufacture of butain honey (hash) oil.

The RCMP seized around 50 pounds of drying marijuana bud, 491 high-yielding pot plants, several firearms and more than $7,000 cash, as well as a pick-up truck and a quad, according to the report.
