Search warrant turns up drugs in Penticton residence

Two men are facing charges after Penticton RCMP Drug Task Force officers seized nine ounces of marijuana in a residence.

On Nov. 7, officers executed a drug search warrant in the 400 block of Eckhardt Avenue East where they arrested a 48-year-old man with a previous criminal history of drug trafficking and a 31-year-old male. Cpl. Brad Myhre said an 11-year-old boy was also located in the residence and turned over to his mother.

The 31 year old male was released with no charges, while the other man was released to appear in court in December facing a single charge of possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking. Myhre said officers seized the marijuana, a substantial amount of cash and trafficking paraphernalia in the residence.
