Two of the three people charged in a major drug bust in western Saskatchewan have made their first court appearance.
The trio were charged after a traffic stop in Richmound on Friday night. Officers found a large quantity of marijuana in the vehicle, which prompted RCMP to search a home. Police seized 433 marijuana plants, which had a street value of more than $430,000.
Charlene McBride, 44, and Ronald Hodgson, 48, were both arrested after the traffic stop. Both are charged with two counts of possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking, and one count for production of marijuana.
Keith McBride, 20, was arrested at the home and is charged with one count of possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking, and one count for production of marijuana.
Charlene and Keith McBride both made their first court appearance on Monday morning. Hodgson will make his first court appearance in September.
