A 34-year-old West Kelowna man faces numerous charges after he was caught dealing marijuana from a vehicle in the McDonalds parking lot.
Cst. Kris Clark says police were tipped off to the man's activities near the West Kelowna McDonalds on Gellatly Road last Friday.
"When police attended they located a white Ford F150 with Alberta plates parked at the rear of the restaurant," says Clark.
"Police initiated a traffic stop and subsequently arrested the man for possession of a controlled substance."
Clark says police seized 44 grams of marijuana, $2,410 cash and a pair of brass knuckles.
According to Clark the suspect is known to police and the vehicle had been flagged as a vehicle of interest earlier in the week.
Clark says he wasn't surprised when he learned where the dealing was taking place.
"It can happen anywhere," says Clark.
The unidentified man faces charges of Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking and Possession of a Prohibited Weapon.
He was released on a Promise to Appear in August.
