Penticton RCMP Drug Task Force made arrests for drug trafficking and possession in two separate incidents on Monday.

Calvin Louie Senger faces one charge for possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking when the 24 year old was arrested in a store parking lot in the 2700 block of Skaha Lake Road. Cple Brad Myhre said the Okanagan Falls man was found to be in possession of four ounces (112 grams) of marijuana packaged for sale along with trafficking paraphernalia. Senger was held for court until Tuesday where he was released on conditions to appear at a later date.

Also on Monday, the Drug Task Force arrested a 19 year old female resident of Penticton in the parking lot of a motel in the 2700 block of Skaha Lake Road. Myhre said she was arrested for marijuana trafficking and for possession of crystal methamphetamine. The woman had no prior criminal convictions and was released to appear in court on Jan. 6, 2014.
