OSOYOOS - A recent Counter-Attack impaired driving campaign on Highway 3 in Osoyoos resulted in the arrest of two men who were allegedly travelling with a signficant amount of illegal drugs in their vehicle.
On Dec. 9, South Okanagan RCMP were checking for impaired drivers when the eastbound vehicle approached. For reasons not disclosed, Mounties started a criminal investigation, using a police service dog named Jet to help them sniff out any narcotics the men might have in their vehicle.
Police discovered nine pounds of marijuana, 750 grams of cocaine, several containers of illicit steroids and 197 tablets of suspected oxycodone.
The two men, 26 and 28, are from the Lower Mainland and remain in police custody pending the outcome of the investigation.
