KELOWNA - Four people could be facing charges after a two-month investigation into drug trafficking by the Kelowna RCMP street enforcement unit.
In a news release, Kelowna RCMP Cpl. Jesse O'Donaghey says three search warrants were executed in the course of the investigation which led to the seizure of illicit drugs and cash.
Officers executed search warrants on two vehicles and a home in the 1800 block of Country Club Drive on March 22. The release says police seized a significant amount of items including suspected illicit drugs, cash, money counters, multiple safes and packaging materials consistent with the drug trade.
"In total police seized over 239 grams of suspected cocaine, and over 160 grams of suspected heroin, in various forms and most of which were individually packaged ready for distribution," O’Donaghey says. "Police also located and seized a total sum of nearly $9,000 in cash."
Two 22-year-old men and an 18-year-old woman from the Vancouver area have been arrested, along with an 18-year-old Ontario man. Each faces potential charges and are expected to appear in Kelowna Law Courts in July.
