RCMP say they seized 85 pot plants and 26 lbs. of fresh marijuana laid out for drying from a home in Salmo Tuesday.

The drugs were found as officers from the Trail and Salmo detachments executed a search warrant.

One man was arrested leaving the home and will appear in court in Nelson on charges of production and possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking.

"Given the quantity of the seizure it is reasonable to suspect that this marijuana in part was destined for sale in Trail," Cpl. Darryl Orr said in a news release.
