Four people were arrested during the operation Tuesday afternoon at the site police call a suspected drug house being used to sell drugs on 32nd Street at 39th Avenue, along the highway through the city.
“The search resulted in the seizure of large quantities of what police believe to be methamphetamine, cocaine and fentanyl along with Canadian currency and other items related to drug trafficking,” says Sgt David Evans of the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP Targeted Policing Unit.
