The Kelowna RCMP Community Safety Unit seized suspected illicit drugs from a Kelowna home for the second time in two months

On March 24, Kelowna RCMP executed a search warrant at a property located in the 400-block of Hein Road in Kelowna.

"This was the same residence at which the CSU executed a search warrant on Feb. 28. Both warrants were related to drug trafficking in the area," said Cpl. Jocelyn Noseworthy, with the Kelowna RCMP, in a news release.

During the execution of this warrant, the RCMP seized suspected illicit drugs, including cocaine, methamphetamine, and fentanyl, according to Noseworthy.

"In addition to the drugs, police seized more than $3,000, as well as stolen property including several bicycles, and identification. Prohibited items including brass knuckles were also seized," Noseworthy said in the release.

Eleven individuals were taken into custody during the execution of the search warrant and were later released without charge, pending further investigation. The matter will be submitted to Public Prosecution Service of Canada for consideration of charges, Noseworthy said in the release.
