October 15, 2014 - 3:52 PM

KELOWNA - A four-week drug trafficking investigation led Mounties to two Kelowna homes and resulted in two arrests Friday.

RCMP entered a residence on the 200 block of Mills Road with a warrant in hand Oct. 10. A second search warrant was executed at a residence on the 1400 block of Crawford Road.

In a media release, police said the searches yielded a significant amount of evidence to support the on-going investigation, including drugs, cash body armour, ammunition and property. Officers seized 1.515 kg cocaine, 1.038 kg of methamphetamine, 64.89 g of ecstacy, 224.2 g of heroin, 403 g of hash, more than $18,500 cash, around 500 rounds of various calibre ammunition and body armour. As well, two newer pickup trucks, three newer domestic cars and an all-terraine vehicle were seized as proceeds of crime.

Two Kelowna men ages 30 and 34 were arrested and each face four potential charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking. They were released to appear in court at a later date.
