Vernon RCMP have arrested three people for possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking at what they call a ‘problem residence’ on the 3500 block of 24th Avenue.
The arrests took place last Wednesday, August 22nd, when officers executed a warrant at the home.
Police say the search resulted in the seizure of large quantities of what they believe-to-be cocaine and heroin/fentanyl, along with Canadian currency and other items related to drug trafficking.
“The residence, where the warrant was executed, was identified as a problem premise in our community being used to traffic street level quantities of drugs,” says Corporal Dan Pollock, of the Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP targeted policing unit. “Our efforts will continue to disrupt activities at this location until the illegal activity ceases.”
The three subjects arrested were released from custody while the RCMP continue the investigation and consider charges.
The RCMP say prior to the search warrant being executed, a stolen vehicle was seen leaving the residence.
Police located the vehicle and arrested one male, who remains in custody for possession of stolen property and theft of a motor vehicle.
The suspect appears in court on August 30th.
