More details are coming out about a cube van seized by police after a bear spray incident last Saturday, March 17th on Highway 6 near Lumby.
A man who stopped to help whom he thought was a motorist in trouble was allegedly sprayed and his vehicle stolen.
It was later located in Lumby.
RCMP now say their investigation revealed a possible clandestine drug lab in the back of the cube van that had lost control and ended up in the ditch.
Thursday, March 22nd, the RCMP Federal Clandestine Laboratory Enforcement and Response Team (CLEAR) was called out in order to safely examine the vehicle.
Additional support services such as Vernon Fire Rescue, BC Ambulance Service and the Tervita Hazmat Disposal Team were called to assist the RCMP CLEAR team and its investigators.
Police have not yet determined who is responsible for the robbery and suspected clandestine drug lab.
