3 arrested at suspected drug lab

Two men and one woman have been arrested after police busted their suspected drug lab in Vernon Friday afternoon.

Around 3 p.m. Vernon RCMP entered a house on the 1700 block of 41st Ave in Vernon.

The three occupants were apparently arrested without incident. 

Sgt Gord Molendyk with Vernon RCMP said the specialized unit was called in to deal with unknown chemicals being used in the building. 

He could not confirm whether anyone was injured in the process or whether any charges had been laid against the three.
