Richmond man busted during Kelowna traffic stop

KELOWNA - A Richmond man, 26, is facing possible charges after RCMP seized drugs and cash during a road check last night.

Police pulled the black Nissan Altima over at about 11:10 p.m. at the intersection of Lakeshore Road and Richter Street as part of a road check exercise. As police spoke to the three occupants, they happened to see evidence of drugs inside the car which prompted the arrest of all three men and a thorough search of the car.

Mounties seized 42 grams of crack cocaine, 15 grams of heroin, 1.7 grams of meth, 4.6 grams of powder cocaine and a significant quantity of cash.

Two men, one from Vancouver, 32 and the other from Surrey, 30, have since been released without charges.

The Richmond man faces possible charges of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking. He was released on a promise to appear in court at a later date.
