Oliver couple facing drug charges

Police find cocaine and methamphetamine during vehicle stop in Summerland

Possession of cocaine and methamphetamine have landed an Oliver couple in jail.

On May 9, Penticton RCMP Drug Task Force officers stopped a vehicle in Summerland occupied by a 39-year-old male and a 32-year-old female, both residents of Oliver.

Cpl. Brad Myhre said a search of the couple and their vehicle turned up over three ounces of cocaine and a small amount of crystal methamphetamine.

RCMP said the male was found to have a lengthy criminal record and recently finished a three-year jail sentence for cocaine trafficking after being arrested in 2008 for selling cocaine to an undercover RCMP officer. The woman was found to be on probation and also have a current outstanding drug charge from Oliver.

Both were held for court on Friday.
