A significant amount of cash and drugs was seized following a traffic stop in Kelowna Friday night.
Members of the RCMP Street Enforcement Team had been investigating a group of “dial-a-dope” dealers, who they believed were based out of a rental apartment in the downtown core.
Officers stopped a Mercedes ML320 and found evidence of drug trafficking. The driver, who had recently been unlicensed, was arrested at the scene.
Further investigation led officers to a suite on Ellis Street where police seized over $16,000 in cash, 35 grams of crack cocaine, 125 grams of marijuana, and 30 unknown prescription pills.
Police have already recommended several charges against associated individuals, but the investigation into the drug trafficking operation and its connection to organized crime is ongoing.
