3 teens arrested and handguns, suspected drugs seized in Kelowna bust

Three teenagers were arrested during a drug bust in Kelowna last month that also netted two handguns, cash, and suspected fentanyl and cocaine.

Kelowna RCMP executed a search warrant along the 1200 block of Ellis Street last Friday as part of a street-level, drug trafficking investigation targeting a crime group. Police suspect the Kelowna group is tied to activity in the Lower Mainland.

Three 16-year-old boys, all from Ontario, were arrested, according to a media release issued Wednesday. Police said they were later released into the care of the Ministry of Children and Family Development on strict conditions with a future court date in Kelowna.

Police say the three Ontario teens are well-known to Canadian law enforcement agencies.

They added that the search warrant netted a cash seizure of approximately $30,000. Also seized were undisclosed quantities of suspected fentanyl and cocaine — already packaged for immediate distribution on the street — and two loaded handguns.
