VERNON - Four people were arrested yesterday afternoon for drug trafficking after a police raid at a Vernon home.

Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP say large quantities of what is believed to be methamphetamine, cocaine and fentanyl were found at the property located at the corner of 32 Street and 39 Avenue, along with Canadian currency and "other items" related to drug trafficking.

RCMP executed a Controlled Drugs and Substances Act search warrant at 3 p.m. July 31, and found several people at the property, four of which were arrested.

"The residence, where the warrant was executed, was identified as a problem premise in our community being used to traffic street-level quantities of drugs," Sgt. David Evans says in an RCMP media.

The four suspects were released from custody while the RCMP continues its investigation and considers charges.
