RCMP busted a large supply of illicit drugs in North Glenmore last week, the second significant raid in two days.
Officers arrested two Kelowna women, ages 33 and 47, inside a house in the 300 block of Moubray Road on Aug. 27. The Mounties found a cornucopia of drugs, including
2.5 gallons of GHB - the liquid commonly known as the date-rape drug.
Investigators also seized several ounces each of cocaine, crack cocaine and crystal meth.
They discovered 10 bottles of methadone, each about a quarter litre, and small amounts of heroin, marijuana and various pills.
Police announced the bust Thursday. They're withholding the women's names but are familiar with both of them. They each face a charge of possession for the purpose of trafficking and are out on bail. They make their first court appearances Nov. 14.
The day after the bust, RCMP arrested two men they say were carrying a large amount of drugs as they drove into Westbank from the Okanagan Connector.
Inside their vehicle was a bag containing 8.5 ounces of cocaine and an ounce of heroin. Investigators suspect the drugs were destined for sale in the Okanagan. If sold in small amounts, they would have been worth more than $200,000.
One of the men was Peter Collins, the 62-year-old father of Neil Elliott Collins, 36. The younger Collins was arrested in May in a Shannon Lake penthouse.
Officers seized nearly eight ounces of heroin, 4.5 ounces of crystal meth and four ounces of marijuana bud, as
well as half a litre of GHB and a quarter litre of liquid codeine.
Police also found hundreds of prescription pills stolen from a local pharmacy, thousands in cash and a loaded 9mm Glock 17 handgun.
Neil Collins is in custody on other charges and is now awaiting trial for trafficking, a weapons offence and possessing stolen property.
