Several rifles plus drugs and suspected stolen property were seized from a Rutland residence, Kelowna RCMP announced on Tuesday.

Police also said four people were arrested when a search warrant was executed on March 13 along the 400 block of Montgomery Road.

The warrant, police added, was related to an active criminal investigation into suspected drug trafficking in the Rutland area.
