Two of the accused in the province’s biggest drug bust this year will head to a preliminary hearing January.

Melanie Boulette and Cory Graham, from the R.M. of Medstead, appeared in North Battleford Provincial Court Friday, Nov. 25. They will be back again Jan. 31 and Feb. 2 for the preliminary hearing.

Boulette, Graham and a third accused, Oscar Gutierrez-Reyes from Ontario, were arrested in September after the province’s biggest drug bust this year.

They were all charged with production of cannabis, possession for the purpose of trafficking and possession of property obtained by crime.

During the raid, police seized roughly 700 marijuana plants, 2.3 kg of packaged marijuana, firearms and more than $6,000.
