Police arrested two men while executing a drug warrant on a house in Penticton yesterday.

Penticton RCMP came knocking on the door in the 200 block of Hastings Street and found various quantities of marijuana, LSD, MDMA, and hash oil.

Rory Ivan Thayer, 24, and James Dean Matthew, 26 were taken into custody for court to face a number of drug related charges. 

Matthew also faces two charges of breach of a recognizance for a matter he was already on bail for.

The same day, Mounties arrested two people from Kelowna.

A 32-year-old woman and a 31-year-old man were in a vehicle in the 300 block of Riverside Drive in Penticton when the arrests occurred.

Officers seized more than a litre of GHB, also known as the "date rape drug". Police say the amount is equivalent to 200 doses.

Both were held in custody and released in a bail hearing, facing charges of trafficking and possession for the purpose of trafficking in GHB.
