Penticton’s RCMP Drug Task Force got a two-for-one deal when it busted a suspected heroin dealer at a local motel.

Mounties said in a press release they executed a search warrant at the unnamed Westminster Avenue motel on Wednesday. Inside a room they found a 29-year-old man allegedly in possession of heroin.

While officers were still there, a 22-year-old man allegedly showed up with cocaine.

The unidentified 29-year-old was charged with possession of heroin and is due back in court in March.

The 22-year-old, Levi Darrin Savard, was charged with possession of cocaine and is behind bars awaiting his next court appearance.

Police said three young children had been living in the motel room and were allowed to leave with their mother, but the Ministry of Children and Family Development was notified.
