RCMP said a 21-year-old man and a 19-year-old woman, both of Penticton, were arrested. Both of the individuals have been released from custody on conditions to attend a later court date. Charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking, possession of a controlled substance, possession of prohibited firearm with ammunition are being recommended against both individuals.
