3 arrested after raid on home in Kelowna
Mounties find drugs, stolen items, firearms during search
Three people were arrested Wednesday night following the search of a home police believe was being used by prolific offenders in Kelowna.
Police say officers executed a search warrant at a residence in the 800 block of Martin Avenue at 7:40 p.m.
Three people were found inside the home at the time and were taken into custody.
During the search, police seized illicit drugs along with a significant amount of suspected stolen items, including several expensive bicycles, specialized clothing, firearms and countless personal identification cards.
“Many of the items recovered have serial numbers,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey. “Our investigators are now processing the stolen property seized from this residence in an effort to identify rightful owners and reunite those citizens with their belongings.”
One of the suspects, a 32-year-old Kelowna man, was wanted on numerous outstanding warrants for his arrest, facing upwards of 13 theft- and fraud-related criminal charges.
He was held in custody and is facing a number of new criminal charges.
A 31-year-old Kelowna woman, who was also wanted on outstanding warrants for her arrest, was held in custody.
A 25-year-old Kelowna woman was later released and is expected to appear in court at a later date.
Anyone with additional information is asked to contact the RCMP at 250-762-3300.
