Golden-Field RCMP say an estimated $500,000 worth of illicit drugs were seized during a road check near the B.C. town of Field this week.

It happened on March 2 during a traffic stop with a person driving a Mitsubishi Outlander. Officers found four kilograms of marijuana and 10 litres of high-quality hash oil known as “Phoenix Tears.”

“It is extremely rewarding knowing that we were able to keep these dangerous drugs from reaching the streets of our communities,” said Sgt. Rob Haney of the Trans Canada East Traffic Services, in a statement.

Two Alberta men, ages 24 and 47, are scheduled to appear in court in Golden, B.C., on May 10.
