Three local men have been arrested after RCMP took down an outdoor grow-op north of Beasley on Friday.

Three local men have been arrested after RCMP took down an outdoor grow-op north of Beasley on Friday.

In a news release, police said the three men, a 37-year-old from Harrop, 29-year-old from Kaslo, and 32-year-old from the Whitewater area, were arrested after they were seen leaving the grow-op with freshly clipped plants.

The site was off the Sproule Creek forest service road.

Sgt. Dennis Blanch said it concluded a month-long investigation.

Although police didn’t say how many plants they seized, they said the “conservative” street value was $200,000.

Two vehicles operated by the men were also seized as offence-related property. The men, who have since been released from custody, face charges of drug production and possession for the purpose of trafficking.

Police didn’t say when they are due in court.
