A 50-year-old man is facing charges after RCMP officers found illicit drugs, firearms and cash in a residence and motorhome in West Kelowna.

On Sept. 30, West Kelowna police officers executed a search warrant related to an active criminal investigation into suspected drug trafficking at a property located in the 2000 block of Last Road in West Kelowna, according to the RCMP in a press release.

“During their search of the property, police seized quantities of suspected illicit drugs from inside the residence,” said Const. Solana Paré, media relations officer for the Kelowna RCMP, in the release. “A variety of weapons including five firearms, ammunition, imitation firearms and a large amount of cash was also seized by police. Officers also seized a motorhome from the property in relation to proceeds of crime.”

Five people were taken into custody during the execution of the warrant and the 50-year-old West Kelowna man was later released to appear in court at a further date. The matter will be submitted to Public Prosecution Service of Canada for consideration of charges, according to the RCMP.
