The Kelowna RCMP seized three firearms and a variety of illicit and prescription drugs after a disturbance in a parking lot on April 2.
That afternoon, just after 1:30 p.m., two RCMP officers began investigating a disturbance between two individuals in a lot along Highway 33.
One of the individuals was taken into police custody and incidental to his arrest, a large amount of suspected illicit drugs and cash were located in his possession. RCMP seized a loaded handgun and more drugs from a nearby vehicle believed to be associated with the same individual.
Further investigation led to the recovery and seizure of two additional non-restricted firearms from a nearby motel room.
Investigators have now determined that the restricted firearm had been reported stolen from a residence in West Kelowna in October of 2019.
The investigation is ongoing and both individuals could face criminal charges.
