Police Swarm Nickel Rd

UPDATE AT 12.30 p.m

Kelowna RCMP confirm they were called to a notorious drug house on Nickel Road Friday morning after two people were found to have overdosed.

According to police, one of the two was confused and upset when they were brought back with narcan, prompting EHS to call the RCMP for backup.

Cst. Mike Della-Paolera said that because the residence is “known to police,” they showed up in numbers for officer safety reasons.

He said police eventually left without incident.


ORIGINAL 9.00

RCMP have stumbled upon what neighbors call a notorious drug house on Nickel Road.

According to a neighbor, about half a dozen RCMP vehicles and two ambulances converged on the home at 235 Nickel Road.

It is unclear exactly why the police showed up at the property.

Paramedics apparently performed CPR on one person for several minutes.

Police were seen crawling through an upper window at one point.

The RCMP is no stranger to home.

In April, the police were called after a person had allegedly turned up assaulted with a baseball bat.

Three weeks ago the police visited the home and neighbors said more firearms were removed.

Castanet has contacted the police for a comment on the latest incident.
