“This investigation has direct ties to the drug trade within the City of Kelowna, even though the search warrants were executed in the City of West Kelowna,” said Cpl. Jeff Carroll, NCO in charge of the Drug Section.

RCMP added that a 33-year-old man was arrested but was later released, and that the matter has been submitted to prosecutors for consideration.
