More than five kilograms of drugs, a large amount of cash, three firearms and body armour were seized by Kamloops RCMP in three related raids yesterday, Jan. 7.

Cocaine, methamphetamine, and fentanyl were found in the raids.

Police executed a search warrant at a west Valleyview property at about 10:30 a.m. That led to further searches of a property in Sun Rivers and a storage locker on the Tk’emlups Reserve over the next few hours, police said in a release.

One man was arrested and later released as part of the ongoing investigation.
