Lake Country man arrested after drugs, cash found in car

Traffic check nets drugs and cash, suspicion of drug trafficking.

Two Central Okanagan residents face possible drug charges after a police check stop located numerous small packages of various illicit drugs early Saturday morning.

On June 29, shortly after 1 a.m., members of the Kelowna RCMP were conducting a check stop on Harvey Avenue at Water Street for eastbound highway traffic.

The driver of a black Chevy Cavalier, a 32-year-old West Kelowna woman, was unable to produce a driver’s licence. Further investigation to determine ownership of the vehicle made police suspicious of the driver and her male passenger.

A search of the vehicle revealed 79 quarter-gram packages of meth, heroin, powder cocaine and crack cocaine as well as $175 cash and paraphernalia consistent with the trafficking of drugs.

The woman, and a 32-year-old Lake Country man, were both arrested for possession for the purpose of trafficking.

They were both released on a promise to appear for court at a later date.
