Penticton RCMP make another cocaine bust

A Penticton man was arrested after Penticton RCMP Drug Task Force officers said they found him in possession of cocaine.

On April 13, Mounties arrested the 45-year-old man as he exited a vehicle in the 2400 block of Skaha Lake Road. Cpl. Brad Myhre said the man had several small packages of powder cocaine packaged for street level sales and trafficking paraphernalia.

Myhre said the man was remanded in custody by a justice of the peace to provincial court on Monday facing a charge of possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking. RCMP said the man has previous criminal drug charges for both marijuana grow operations and cocaine trafficking.
