A man and a woman have been charged in a massive Kelowna fentanyl bust that took place last spring.

On Monday, Kelowna RCMP announced Brandon Campbell, a 27-year-old Kelowna resident, and Lisa Lakey, a 48-year-old Summerland resident, had been charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking.

In April 2018, police executed a search warrant on a home in the 60-block Old Meadows Road in Kelowna as part of a wider investigation into drug trafficking in the Okanagan area.

Inside the home, police found a massive quantity of pre-packaged illicit drugs that were intended for sale. Three people inside the home were arrested during the search.

Police seized 665 bags of fentanyl, 503 bags of cocaine, 112 bags of methamphetamine, small amounts of heroin, small amounts of psilocybin mushrooms and more than $15,500 in cash.

“The drug section of the Kelowna RCMP Street Enforcement Unit will continue to actively pursue those persons involved in the trafficking of illicit drugs throughout Kelowna,” said Cpl. Jeff Carroll in a statement announcing the charges.
