A recent RCMP investigation has resulted in multiple drug and weapons related charges against a West Kelowna man.

Police arrived at a condo complex in the 2200 block of Upper Sundance Drive last week with a warrant in hand after tracking the activities of the occupants over the course of a month. The search was also preceded by three traffic stops the previous evening.

The first stop resulted in the seizure of 21.75 g of crystal methamphetamine, 2 g of heroin, 14 morphine pills, 33 g of methadone and 10 dilaudid tablets. Two more stops happened shortly after and police seized more than 20 suspected stolen times including air guns, scopes, electronics and clothing. Both drivers were arrested.

The next morning Mounties executed the search warrant, seizing 7.8 ounces of heroin, 4.5 ounces of crystal methamphetamine, 111.6 g of marijuana bud, 0.03 g crack cocaine, 600 ml gamma-hydoxybutyric acid (GHB), a loaded syringe and suspected heroin, 250 ml of liquid codeine, hundreds of various prescription pills, a significant amount of cash and a loaded 9mm Glock 17 handgun.

It's suspected the prescription pills were stolen recently from a West Kelowna pharmacy.

Neil Elliot Collins, 36, is charged with multiple counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking and possession of a prohibited/restricted firearm with ammunition. A 26-year-old West Kelowna man, a 23-year-old Kelowna woman and a 42-year-old West Kelowna woman also face potential charges.
