A Penticton man was arrested in the early hours of Oct. 20 with a quantity of drugs.
“RCMP checked a male riding a very high-end mountain bike on Jermyn Avenue. The male had an outstanding warrant from Keremeos and he was transported back to cells where he was found to have a quantity of drugs suspected to be methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin, LSD, marijuana and a number of prescription pills as well as money — suspecting that he is trafficking in drugs,” said Cpl. Don Wrigglesworth.
The 43-year-old Penticton man was arrested at 3:45 a.m. and released on a promise to appear in court. He was charged with a single count trafficking drugs with potentially more charges coming as RCMP wait for the lab results to come back on the suspected drugs.
The warrant the 43-year-old was wanted on out of Keremeos was for driving while disqualified.
