The Kelowna RCMP seized several illicit drugs following the execution of a search warrant at a residence in North Central Kelowna.

On Wednesday, June 3, officers executed a search warrant at a property located in the 1400-block of Gordon Drive in Kelowna. The warrant was related to an active criminal investigation into suspected drug trafficking in the area.

An amount of cash was also seized.”

Two individuals were taken into custody during the execution of the search warrant at the residence and were subsequently released. The matter will be submitted to Public Prosecution Service of Canada for consideration of charges.
