On June 16th, a member of the Kelowna RCMP’s Central Okanagan Traffic Services pulled over a white Chev Pickup that was speeding on Hwy 97 near Lodge Rd.

While dealing with the 31 year old male driver, the officer detected the unmistakable odour of vegetative Marihuana coming from within the vehicle. The officer placed the driver under arrest for Possession of a Controlled Substance. The driver then retrieved a shoe box sized package that had been gift wrapped with “baby gift” wrapping on it which featured soothers and yellow rubber duckies on the wrapping. The driver handed the “gift” to the officer indicating it as the source of the odour. Inside the “gift” was a pound of processed, dried Marihuana.

The driver was released on a Promise to Appear in court, in September,for a recommended charge of Possession of a Controlled Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking. The Vernon resident also received a Speeding Ticket.
