Police have seized an estimated $30,000 worth of drugs after an arrest in Vernon — and a search of a home in Lake Country.
A 34 year old Vernon woman arrested last week was found with drugs packaged for street sale and a large quantity of cash.
That led to a search warrant being used by the Targeted Policing Unit on a condo complex in the 3100 block of Beaver Lake Road in Lake Country, resulting in large quantities of heroin/fentanyl mix, cocaine, methamphetamine and cash being seized.
Police say the heroin/fentanyl mix was packaged in 0.1 and 0.2 gram weights for a total of 523 street level portions. The crack cocaine was packaged in 0.2 and 0.4 gram weights for a total of 457 street level portions. The methamphetamine was packaged in 0.4 gram weights for a total of 82 street level portions.
“This investigation targeted persons controlling the drug supply above the street level dealer and will have a significant impact on the group’s operations in our community” says Sgt. David Evans of the RCMP’s Targeted Policing Unit
The woman was released from custody on conditions for a future court appearance to face charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking.
