A Kelowna man with a lengthy criminal record is facing three drug trafficking charges after Penticton RCMP arrested him on Wednesday.

Cpl. Brad Myhre said the man had 28 previous convictions and was arrested with a 21-year-old female from Penticton in the 900 block of Fairview Road for drug trafficking.

RCMP said they searched the man and found quantities of heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine hidden on his person plus trafficking paraphernalia. He was released to appear later in court and the woman was released with no charges.
