2,000 pot plants seized in Joe Rich drug raid

Six arrested in drug raid

Six people were arrested in a rural Kelowna drug raid, Wednesday.

RCMP executed a search warrant at a home on the 7500 block of Falcon Road in Joe Rich and seized $1,400 in cash, 95 pounds of dried marijuana bud and nearly 2,000 plants.

During the raid, four women and two men were arrested. They have since been released from custody and will appear in court at a later date. 

“These types of investigations are laborious and our investigators worked tirelessly to secure the evidence,” says Cpl. Meghan Foster.  

Policing jurisdiction for Joe Rich is run out of the West Kelowna RCMP detachment.

FortisBC was at the scene to cut power to the home so police could safely seize the evidence.
