Penticton RCMP arrest two with lengthy records

Penticton RCMP nabbed a pair of suspected drug dealers who have approximately 30 prior criminal convictions each.

Cpl. Brad Myhre said on March 19 the RCMP Drug Task Force arrested a 48-year-old Penticton man in a vehicle on Martin Street. Mounties found marijuana packaged for street level sales and several different types of opiate prescription pills not prescribed to him. Following his arrest, RCMP executed a search warrant at a motel room on Skaha Lake Road where a 35-year-old male was arrested.

“During the search of this room, the officers located and seized approximately a further two pounds of marijuana, approximately 200 additional opiate prescription pills and a prohibited weapon plus extensive trafficking paraphernalia,” said Myhre.

Both males were held for court on Tuesday. RCMP said the 35-year-old man had numerous outstanding warrants for his arrest in Ontario.
