RCMP arrested seven individuals and found illicit drugs, weapons and other property while executing a search warrant at a Kelowna home.

On Nov. 4, police officers executed the search warrant at a residence in the 300 block of Mallach Road in the Rutland neighbourhood, according to an RCMP media release. The warrant was related to an active criminal investigation into suspected drug trafficking.

“During their search of the home, police seized quantities of suspected illicit drugs including suspected marihuana, ketamine, fentanyl, and methamphetamine from inside the residence and the property,” Kelowna RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jocelyn Noseworthy said in the release. “Our officers also seized weapons and numerous items used for the production of illicit drugs.”

One occupant was arrested for an outstanding warrant. Six others were taken into custody and later released unconditionally without charge, pending further investigation, RCMP said.

The investigation will be submitted to the Public Prosecution Service of Canada for consideration of charges.
