File # 2019-38329

A nearly month long police investigation into alleged drug trafficking, centred around a West Kelowna property, culminated in the execution of a pair of search warrants Sunday on both a private residence and a motor vehicle.

On July 28, 2019 West Kelowna RCMP executed a search warrant issued for a property located in the 3400-block of Old Okanagan Highway, and a further search warrant obtained for a motor vehicle spotted by investigators leaving that location.

As a result of their search of both the residence and the vehicle, police seized undisclosed quantities of suspected cocaine, crystal methamphetamine, heroin, and various forms of cannabis.

police also seized a sawed off shotgun, a pair of rifles, ammunition, crossbows, batons, bear spray and pellet guns along with over $10,000 cash and suspected stolen property.

Along with the suspected illicit drugs removed from our streets, states Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey, police also seized a sawed off shotgun, a pair of rifles, ammunition, crossbows, batons, bear spray and pellet guns along with over $10,000 cash and suspected stolen property.

A 45-year-old man, 26-year-old man and an 18-year-old woman, each of West Kelowna now face potential drug related charges. They are each expected to make their first appearance in court in October 2019.
