One man was arrested after the Kelowna RCMP found drugs, cash and drug paraphernalia at a Rutland residence during a raid today.

The Kelowna RCMP Community Safety Unit executed a search warrant and seized suspected illicit drugs, weapons and cash at a property located in 100 block of Taylor Road today, Oct. 23, according to an RCMP media release.

The warrant was related to an active criminal investigation into suspected drug trafficking downtown and in the Rutland area.

“During their search of the home, police seized quantities of suspected fentanyl, cocaine, methamphetamine, LSD and MDMA,” Kelowna RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jocelyn Noseworthy said in the release. “Our officers also seized weapons and various drug paraphernalia items commonly used in the trafficking of controlled substances from inside the residence, along with an undisclosed amount of Canadian and American currency.”

A 46-year-old Kelowna man was arrested at the scene and has been released with a future court date, RCMP said. The investigation is ongoing and the findings will be provided to the Public Prosecution Service of Canada for review and charge assessment.
