Vernon RCMP find drugs in Landing motor home

RCMP officers found more than just drugs inside an Okanagan Landing home Tuesday.

After receiving information that a suspect was trafficking cocaine and heroin from a motor home parked in the 6100 block of Okanagan Landing Road at 8 p.m., Vernon RCMP officers obtained a warrant to search the home.

“When police entered the motor home, four people were found inside, three men and a woman,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “Approximately two grams of powder cocaine, one gram of rock cocaine, six-and-a-half grams of heroin, three grams of methamphetamine as well as assorted pills were found in the motor home.”

Police also found and seized scales, packaging material and Canadian money.

Also discovered inside the motor home were snowboards, skis and other items believed to have been stolen from a recent break-and-enter in the Vernon area.

The owner of the motor home, a 27-year-old man, was arrested on the spot for drug- and property-related charges.

The woman, 24, was found to have an outstanding warrant for her arrest.

Both were taken into Vernon RCMP custody and were slated to appear in Vernon Provincial Court later in the week.

The other two men were released at the motor home.
