Trio facing trafficking charges

Three teenagers are facing trafficking charges following a bust in Coldstream Friday.

VernonRCMP responsed to a call about a suspicious vehicle in the 8700 block of Braeburn Drive, in the Middleton Mountain area, shortly before 4 p.m.

“Our officer located the vehicle, a black GMC pickup with three teens in it,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “

As the officer was dealing with the occupants, he noticed a strong odour of marijuana. All three men were arrested.”

In the vehicle, police found 14 bags of individually wrapped packages of cocaine, some ecstacy, about 23 grams of marijuana, a quantity of cash, two cell phones, scales and other drug paraphernalia.

The suspects are a 17-year old from Lumby, and a 15- and 16-year-old from Coldstream.

“The three young men have been released to their parents and are expected to face charges relating to drug trafficking at a later date,” said Molendyk.
