Two search warrants resulted in almost 10 pounds of dried marihuana, more than 3,300 marijuana plants and a quantity of Canadian currency.

The warrants, executed Saturday by the Williams Lake RCMP with the assistance of the RCMP North District Drug Section, were on a residence and a large outbuilding in the Morehead Lake area near Likely.

A 38-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman have been charged with possession of cannabis resin for the purpose of trafficking and production of a controlled substance. The Ministry of Children and Families apprehended a two-year old and four-year old — believed to be the children of the adults — from the home due to health concerns stemming from marijuana grow operations including high voltage electrical wires not commonly installed to B.C.
