Kelowna duo face drug charges after Rutland house bust Two Kelowna residents will be expected at a future court date after police allege they found dried marijuana and other drug paraphernalia inside a Rutland home over the weekend. RCMP executed a search warrant at a home in the 300-block of Froelich Road around 3:30 p.m. on Saturday as part of an ongoing marijuana trafficking investigation, said Staff Sgt. John Jordan. Investigators say they found less than 500 grams of dried marijuana, packaging material and weigh scales during the course of the search, and also took five people into custody. Three men, two of whom are associated with the home, were released unconditionally, say police, while a man and a woman associated with the home will have to appear in court at a later date. They’re facing recommended charges of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, police say.
