RCMP has made another dent in Kelowna’s drug trade.
Just after 4 p.m. on June 2, police noticed a black Nissan Rogue driving slowly through an area known for drug trafficking.
According to an RCMP news release, “after witnessing several motor vehicles act infractions, officers conducted a traffic stop.”
They noticed a strong smell of cannabis coming from inside the vehicle, and the driver pointed out there was cannabis in the centre console and a knife between him and the door.
While the officer secured the knife, a baggy of suspected cocaine, fentanyl, two cell phones and a wallet containing a large wad of cash fell to the ground from inside the driver-side door.
The driver was arrested and faces several charges, and the vehicle was impounded.
In total, police found four cell phones, one black knife, 90.3 grams of cocaine, 28.7 grams of fentanyl, 124 pills of Dilauded, with 56 unknown yellow pills and a large sum of Canadian currency.
“This kind of behaviour will not be tolerated and the Kelowna RCMP will continue to be out in full force, removing these dangerous drugs off of our streets,” said Const. Mike Della-Paolera.
