Kelowna RCMP raided a suspected drug house on Friday, seizing cocaine, heroin, marijuana and other illicit pills.

According to Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey, an investigation led by the Kelowna RCMP Downtown Enforcement Unit culminated in the execution of the search warrant on a home on the 1500 block of Elm Street.

On Jan. 20, officers with the Kelowna RCMP DEU, partnered with general duty officers and RCMP Police Dog Services to execute the warrant.

A man and two women were discovered inside at the time and were arrested without incident.

“A subsequent search of the residence yielded over 100 grams of suspected cocaine, over 1.15 grams of suspected heroin, over 280 grams of marijuana, nearly half a gram of suspected methamphetamine and just over 300 various illicit pills,” said O’Donaghey.

“During their search, investigators also seized a replica firearm, a can of bear spray, packaging materials consistent with drug trafficking and cash.”

The man arrested at the scene was identified by investigators as a 59-year-old Kelowna man in breach of his probation order.

O’Donaghey says he was held in custody over the weekend and faces several potential charges.

The two women were later released without charge.
