The Kelowna RCMP Community Safety Unit (CSU) seized illicit drugs and suspected stolen property following the execution of a search warrant at a residence in downtown Kelowna.

On January 10th, 2020 officers from the Kelowna RCMP Community Safety Unit (CSU) executed a search warrant at a property located in the 400-block of Francis Ave in Kelowna. The warrant was related to an active criminal investigation into suspected drug trafficking in the city’s downtown core.

As a result of information gathered from concerned citizens in the neighbourhood, our officers were able to take action quickly, states Cst. Solana Paré of the Kelowna RCMP. During their search of the home, police seized quantities of suspected ketamine, cocaine, fentanyl, MDMA and various forms of illegal cannabis, as well as suspected stolen identity documents, numerous boxes of suspected stolen property and various drug paraphernalia items commonly used in the trafficking of controlled substances from inside the residence.

A total of four individuals were taken into custody during the execution of the search warrant at the residence. Those individuals were later released unconditionally without charge, pending further investigation.
