Cocaine, other drugs taken off the streets by RCMP

Illicit drugs seized

Several grams of cocaine have been taken off the streets along with various other drugs, thanks to Kelowna RCMP.

During the evening of Saturday November 26, at 11:45 p.m. along KLO Road, an officer pulled over a Hummer H2 with an Alberta licence plate that didn’t match the vehicle.

While chatting with the driver, the officer observed illicit drugs in plain view and arrested the two occupants for possession of a controlled substance.

Following their arrest and search of the two individuals and the vehicle, approximately 70 grams of cocaine, 24 grams of methamphetamine, 58 hydromorphone tablets, 2.5 grams of heroin, 40 ml of anabolic steroids, $1600 cash and evidence of drug trafficking were seized.

“It’s yet another example of the great proactive police work by a front-line Officer,” said Const. Mike Della-Paolera, Media Relations Officer of the Kelowna RCMP.

“If it wasn’t for the keen sense of the Officer those drugs could be on our streets today.”
