A baby was found in a Penticton hotel room where RCMP executed a search warrant that also turned up methamphetamine and drug trafficking paraphernalia.

Penticton RCMP Drug Task Force officers arrested Brody Raymond Murray on four drug trafficking and weapons charges on Dec. 6. The 22-year-old Penticton man was arrested outside of a shopping mall for allegedly trafficking methamphetamine and allegedly in possession of a large canister of bear spray.

Cpl. Brad Myhre said after the arrest a drug search warrant was executed at a Penticton hotel room in the 1400 block of Main Street where the officers found three adults and the seven month old baby. From the initial arrest and the from the motel room Myhre said various quantities of meth and drug trafficking paraphernalia was seized.

Murray was remanded into custody on his charges and the three adults in the hotel room were later released with no charges. Myhre said Murray is eligible for the new mandatory minimum sentence under the CDSA due to the alleged presence of a weapon during his arrest.
