Two Williams Lake sisters were given jail time after being sentenced for trafficking drugs in the community more than two years ago.

On Monday, June 15 in a Kamloops court Janese Louie pleaded guilty to possession for the purpose of trafficking, as well as other criminal charges, and received a 24-month sentence.

Her sister Janette Billy pleaded guilty in Williams Lake Oct. 15, 2014 to possession for the purpose of trafficking in relation to the same investigation and was sentenced to six months in jail.

According to the Williams Lake RCMP, police received information back in February 2013 regarding a drug trafficking ring that was active in the city.

After a thorough investigation police conducted searches of two residences on Second Avenue North. Arrests were made and charges of trafficking crack cocaine and others were laid.

About $7,000 in drugs were seized during the bust along with $1,600 in cash.
