RCMP say they took down a suspected drug house in Vernon. RCMP execute a search warrant on a residence deemed a problem premise.
On July 31st at 3:00 pm, the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP Targeted Policing Unit executed a Controlled Drugs and Substances Act search warrant on a residence located in the 3900 block of 32nd street in Vernon. Police say at the time of the warrant execution several persons were at the location, four of which were arrested for possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking and taken into police custody.
The search resulted in the seizure of large quantities of what police believe to be methamphetamine, cocaine and fentanyl along with Canadian currency and other items related to drug trafficking.

Our efforts will continue to disrupt activities at this location until the illegal activity ceases."
