The Kelowna RCMP seized suspected illicit drugs, weapons, property and cash following the execution of a search warrant at a residence in the 100-block of Taylor Road in Rutland today (Oct. 23).
The warrant was related to an active criminal investigation into suspected drug trafficking in the city’s downtown core and Rutland area.
“During their search of the home, police seized quantities of suspected fentanyl, cocaine, methamphetamine, LSD and MDMA,” said Kelowna RCMP Cpl. Jocelyn Noseworthy.
“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 for a future court date. The investigation remains ongoing and full findings of the investigation will be provided to the Public Prosecution Service of Canada for review and charge assessment.
