Two people are scheduled to appear in provincial court in Penticton in January in connection with the seizure of drugs and ammunition overnight Nov. 29 in the Lakeside Casino parking lot.

The man and woman, well known to police, were in a vehicle and the ammunition which the male was not supposed to be in possession of, was spotted by officers on the car seat.

According to Cpl. Don Wrigglesworth a subsequent search of the vehicle turned up a quantity of heroin, methamphetamine and other supporting evidence of drug trafficking.

Possible charges include possessing ammunition while prohibited and drug possession.

Also overnight on Nov. 29 two businesses on the Penticton Indian Reserve in the area of Green Mountain Road were broken into.

According to Wrigglesworth a number of DeWalt cordless tools along with a generator and air compressor, with a total value in excess of $7,000, were taken from the Green Mountain Equestrian Centre.

Police also reported that P & E Lumber in the same area was also broken into for the fourth time this year.

A large, steel gate was breached, possibly by a vehicle and a compound shed door was pried open. Fuel may have been siphoned at the scene however it did not appear anything else was missing.
