Drugs, weapons, stolen goods found during raid of Kelowna home

Stolen goods, drugs suspected to be fentanyl and a Taser are among the items RCMP found in a Kelowna home suspected of criminal activity.
 
Officers from the Kelowna RCMP Community Safety Unit executed a search warrant April 30, at a property located in the 600-block of Cook Road in Kelowna. The warrant was related to an active criminal investigation into suspected drug trafficking in the area.

“During the search, police seized a quantity of a substance suspected to be fentanyl, as well as stolen property and a device believed to be a conducted energy weapon, commonly known as a ‘Taser’," Cpl. Stuart Smith of the Kelowna RCMP said in a press release.

A total of four individuals were taken into custody during the execution of the search warrant at the residence. Three of those individuals were later released, and a fourth was held in custody pending a court appearance on an unrelated charge. The matter will be submitted to Public Prosecution Service of Canada for consideration of charges.

Anyone who suspects criminal activity in their neighbourhood, are asked to contact the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300, Crime Stoppers at www.crimestoppers.net or at 1-800-222-8477.
