Traffic stop leads to drug bust

Two people are facing multiple charges following a traffic stop on Skaha Lake Road in Penticton.

On Jan. 17, Penticton RCMP Drug Task Force officers came across information that led them to execute a drug search warrant at a residence in the 150 block of Lee Avenue.

Officers found numerous small packages of powder cocaine ready for street level sales along with a pound of marijuana. They also seized around $4,000 in cash and drug trafficking paraphernalia.

Keenan Lance Owens and Ashley Paige Jonasson, both 21-years-old, face two charges of cocaine and marijuana possession for the purpose of trafficking.

They have since been released on bail.
