Kelowna Mounties raided a local drug house earlier this week, turning up drugs, guns — and lots of stolen bicycle.s

On March 13, the Kelowna RCMP Community Safety Unit executed a search warrant for a property in the 400-block of Montgomery Road in Kelowna.

The warrant was related to an active criminal investigation into suspected drug trafficking in Rutland. 

“During their search of the home, police seized quantities of suspected illicit drugs from inside the residence,” Const. Solana Paré of the Kelowna RCMP said in a release. “Our officers also seized numerous firearms, weapons and several bicycles believed to be recovered stolen property.”

Four individuals were taken into custody, but were later released without charges, pending further investigation.
