Schrader was living in a high-end luxury apartment on the 1300 block of Ellis Street with his girlfriend Janay Pratt and a 15-year-old boy. The Ministry of Children and Family Development have been notified.

Kelowna RCMP seized 33 grams of crack cocaine, 3 grams of heroin, a bottle of suspected methadone, 11 cellular phones and drug paraphernalia.

Schrader and Pratt are both charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking. They were released by the court on strict conditions and are scheduled to appear in Kelowna provincial court April 15.
