In June and on September 14th, media releases were issued regarding an update to the investigation and naming those currently charged with offences. See original release. See updated release.

19-year old Preston Norris of Williams Lake is charged with two counts of trafficking in a controlled substance and until yesterday, when he turned himself into the Burnaby RCMP, had a warrant out for his arrest.
