Castlegar RCMP report that a search warrant was executed on Wednesday, Jan. 23 at a residence in the 1600 block of Columbia Avenue. Three people, known to police, were arrested in regard to an ongoing investigation.

A substantial amount of what's believed to be cocaine was seized along with drug paraphernalia and cash according to a press release issued by Cpl. Deb Postnikoff.

Facing charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking and possession of a controlled substance are a 72-year old Castlegar woman, and males from Castlegar and Grand Forks, aged 49 and 43, respectively.

The female was remanded in custody pending a Jan. 24 appearance in court, while the males were released in advance of a February 14 first court appearance.
