VERNON - A targeted RCMP drug trafficking investigation within the city of Vernon resulted in two arrests Friday.

The first man, a 26-year-old White Rock resident, was arrested in his vehicle Oct. 3. In a media release, Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk says the man was in possession of cocaine and heroin packaged for sale. Once the drugs were seized, Mounties executed a search warrant in the 3500 block of 43 Avenue. There they found cocaine pacakged for sale and a large quantity of cash. A 23-year-old Vernon man was arrested.

Both men stood before the Justice of the Peace and were released to appear in court Nov. 13. They face a potential charge of possession for the purpose of trafficking.
