LAKE COUNTRY – Two men are facing charges after police raided a room at the Airport Inn on Friday.

Police seized approximately 5.5 ounces of suspected cocaine, an ounce of hash and $4,000 in cash when executing a search warrant at the Airport Inn in Lake Country Friday evening, Jan. 20, Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey says in a media release.

A 63-year-old Lake Country man, who was inside the hotel room, was arrested without incident.

He is facing drug related charges and will appear in court at a later date.

A 25-year-old West Kelowna man who police saw leaving the hotel room was also arrested. He was in possession of suspected cocaine and is also facing charges.

"These types of investigations can be challenging. The Lake Country RCMP wish to extend their thanks to the owners and staff of the Airport Inn for their continued assistance with police matters involving their establishment,” O’Donaghey says in the release.
