WEST KELOWNA – Charges of drug trafficking and possession of guns have been laid against a West Kelowna resident from Alberta who was arrested last month after police raided a suspected gang member's home.
Savanna Ashley-Lynn Malone, 24, and co-accused Tyson Ashleigh Bone, 32, have been charged with more than a dozen drug and gun-related offences, according to court documents.
Malone — whose identity was not released during an RCMP press conference following the raid — was arrested along with Bone, who is a suspected member of the Kelowna Warriors gang, and a 37-year-old unidentified man.
A seven-year-old child was also taken from the home and placed in the care of the Ministry of Child and Family Development.
Police seized numerous shotguns, pistols and semi-automatic rifles as well as nine 500ml bottles of GBH, six grams of cocaine and 20 grams of methamphetamines from the Windt Road home on July 7.
They also found a leather vest with three patches on the back reading Kelowna Warriors, which Const. Jesse O’Donaghey called a “known gang.”
She made her first appearance in court this week and will be back again in September.
