Familiar home yields drugs
Kamloops Mounties found drugs and stolen identification when searching a familiar house in North Kamloops on the weekend.
On Friday, March 2, at 4:30 p.m., members of the Kamloops RCMP drug section, assisted by emergency response team members and a police dog handler, executed a drug search warrant at a home in the 300-block of Mulberry Avenue.
Mounties say the address is a known drug house that has been busted before by police.
During the search, police found several small bundles of cocaine packaged in .8 gram units, morphine, drug paraphernalia, $1,765 in small-denomination bills, a pellet gun, drug-packaging materials and documents known as score sheets, which are used to record drug transactions.
Six adults were arrested at the time and all except one were subsequently released without charges.
The primary occupant of the home, a 28-year-old woman who is well-known to police for previous drug-related offences, was held in custody pending an appearance in court on charges of possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking.
Police say additional charges are anticipated against the woman as investigators sift through a large collection personal-identification cards found during the search.
Police recovered driver’s licences, credit cards, vehicle registrations and other documents belonging to a cross-section of people who are believed to have been victims of recent thefts from vehicles and homes.
