Kelowna RCMP officers found more illicit drugs this week after executing a search warrant related to drug trafficking in a Rutland home.

The Kelowna RCMP Community Safety Unit seized the illicit drugs at a residence in the 300 block of Mallach Road in Kelowna this week, according to the RCMP in a press release..

Two men were arrested at the scene for outstanding B.C.-wide warrants on unrelated matters and have been taken into custody.

“During the search of the residence, police seized quantities of suspected methamphetamine, crack cocaine, and fentanyl,” said Cpl. Jocelyn Noseworthy of the Kelowna RCMP, in the press release. 

Last week, police officers also found illicit drugs at a location on the 100 block of Prior Road South in Kelowna in an unrelated investigation.

No charges have been laid at this time, but the investigation is ongoing. The investigation's findings will be forwarded to Crown counsel for review and charge approval.
