Police officers from the Targeted Policing Unit executed a search warrant under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act Wednesday, Aug. 21, 5 p.m.

Upon entry, police searched the residence and seized what is believed to be heroin and crystal methamphetamine.

As well, police located and seized drug paraphernalia, an undisclosed amount Canadian currency and recovered stolen property.

At the time of the warrant execution, police located a total of 11 individuals on the property, some of whom attempted to flee the scene but were apprehended with the help of a police dog.

“Our police officers recognize the impact these types of residences have in a community,” said RCMP Cpl. Tania Finn, media relations officer.

“When we noticed the suspect activity at this property continued after the first search warrant in July, police resources were allocated to conduct an additional follow up investigation.”

The persons associated to the residence are known to police and the investigation continues as police identify owners of the property recovered.

Police are working with the City of Vernon bylaw unit as well as the property owner to reduce further calls associated to this property.
