VERNON - Police arrested three suspected drug dealers and seized large quantities of what is thought to be cocaine, heroin and fentanyl, following a raid at a house in Vernon last week.

According to a Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP press release officers executed a search warrant at the property in the 3500 block of 24 Avenue at around 1 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 22 and arrested three individuals.

Along with the large quantities of drugs, police also found Canadian currency and other items related to drug trafficking.

The release states police had identified the property as a place being used to traffic "street-level quantities of drugs."

Prior to the police raid, a stolen vehicle was seen leaving the property, police then located the vehicle and arrested one male, who remains in custody for possession of stolen property and theft of a motor vehicle. He is due in court Aug. 30.

RCMP say the three suspected drug dealers have been released from custody while the RCMP continues to investigate and consider charges.
