A 37-year-old Penticton man is facing a half-dozen additional drug charges following his arrest by Penticton RCMP’s targeted enforcement unit last week.

Marshall Hunter, known to be wanted by police, was observed going into the Penticton Community Centre and was arrested and taken into custody.

Following his arrest, he was allegedly found to be in possession of drugs and paraphernalia.

“Our unit has been very successful since our inception taking drugs, weapons and prolific offenders off our streets,” said Const. Kyle Richmond of the targeted enforcement unit.
