KELOWNA - Kelowna RCMP officers headed to the Lower Mainland this weekend and arrested a man wanted on drug charges.

The undercover officers arrested Leslie John McCulloch in a Langley area restaurant yesterday, April 28, according to an RCMP media release.

McCulloch pled guilty to charges of production and possession of a controlled substance in early 2017, and was was scheduled to be sentenced in January of this year, but never showed up in court. A Canada wide warrant was issued for his arrest.

Also known as Alexander Lester Kreed, the 40-year-old was arrested by a team of plain clothes officers and was turned over to Langley RCMP, police say.

McCulloch and Rebekka White were arrested in March 2016 after police raided a warehouse on Auburn Road and a home on Petterson Road. Police found more than 1,300 fake Percocet and OxyContin pills, 195 grams of what was suspected to be fentanyl, a chemical mixer, and two well-used industrial pill presses capable of making 2,500 pills per hour.

McCulloch is expected to appear in court on Monday.
