RCMP have seized two dozen guns and thousands of rounds of ammunition from a West Kelowna home under a search warrant connected to a murder investigation. But as Jules Knox reports, the gun owner is upset and says they're not connected to any crime.

Police seized approximately two dozen guns from a residence in West Kelowna’s McDougall Creek Estates mobile home park.

John Anderson said he was shocked to return home Tuesday afternoon to find RCMP officers with a search warrant seizing his guns inside.

The search warrant was issued in connection with the murder investigation of Cory Patterson and the attempted murder of Erick Soza.

On Aug. 30, a 34-year-old man drove himself to the hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. Patterson was found dead in the man’s car.

“Because I’m a gun owner, they want to take my guns because of something they suspect my son of doing,” he said.

Anderson said he doesn’t know where his son is and isn’t currently speaking to him.

He was adamant his guns have not been used in any crime.

RCMP confirmed they were executing a search warrant in relation to the ongoing murder investigation but would not provide any more information.
