Undercover drug investigation leads to 39 arrests

A two-month undercover RCMP investigation targeting the Kelowna drug trade has led to 39 arrests.

The suspects are “alleged to have sold a variety of illegal drugs including heroin, crack cocaine and methamphetamine to the undercover officers,” said Cst. Jesse O’Donaghey.

The arrests occurred during a 10-day surge at the end of April and beginning of May.

While some suspects remain in police custody, others have since been released on a promise to appear in court.
