A “substantial” amount of cocaine has been taken off the streets by Penticton RCMP Drug Task force officers.
Cpl. Brad Myhre said officers stopped two separate vehicles just off of Main Street on Nov. 24 locating 6.3 ounces of cocaine in one car and a large amount of cash in the other.
Jason William Slade and Clifton Lewis White were arrested and charged with trafficking in cocaine and possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking. A 19 year old female was detained briefly but later released with no charges. The two males were released from custody on bail to appear in court at a later date.
