Cops negotiate eviction

Kelowna RCMP were back at a notorious house in the 1300 block of Glenmore Road Friday morning.

Police were present to assist the landlord in executing an eviction notice on the tenant of the house.

While police don't normally deal with the civil eviction process, Cst. Kris Clark said because of past problems with the residents, "it was in our best interest to give help."

"We wanted to complete this safely and this has been accomplished," said Clark.

The eviction notice was issued earlier this week and Clark said there was some resistance.

"There was considerable negotiation. We were here at 9 o'clock this morning to effect the eviction," said Clark.

"After almost two hours of negotiation with the main resident we were finally able to get all the occupants out of the house."

While only one person was legally permitted to live in the house, more than half a dozen people eventually exited the residence.

Police have been at the home many times over the past several months.

Just 10 days ago police were at the home for a report of shots fired.

After a lengthy standoff police entered the home and confiscated a shotgun, a couple of pellet guns and a machette.

It turns out the shot fired was from a starter pistol at the golf course across the street.
