Penticton RCMP have seized drugs, guns and cash in a raid on a Winnipeg Street home.

Police also arrested a 41-year-old man following a drug trafficking investigation involving the residence Winnipeg Street, according to an RCMP media release.

RCMP say on Dec. 16, officers executed the warrant and seized 37 ounces of methamphetamine, 10 ounces of cocaine, eight ounces of suspected fentanyl, a loaded 12-gauge shotgun, a loaded handgun with a prohibited magazine, an SKS rifle and $10,000 in Canadian currency.

Daryl Reinders, 41, was arrested and faces numerous charges.

“This type of drug enforcement is paramount to the safety of the public," Penticton RCMP Staff Sgt. Bob Vatamaniuck said in the release. "Not only was there a substantial quantity of street drug seized, but just as important, these weapons can no longer be used to scare or harm anyone.”
