A search warrant at a home in the Trout Creek area resulted in an arrest for the Penticton Drug Task Force.

On Sept. 13 task force officers arrested three men in a vehicle on Eckhardt Avenue in Penticton. Following the arrest, Mounties attended the residence located on Highway 97 in the Trout Creek area and executed a drug search warrant, arresting one female at the house.

In the course of this search the officers located and seized quantities of powder cocaine, crack cocaine, methamphetamine, three firearms and ammunition.

Cpl. Dan Moskaluk said two of the males arrested in the vehicle and the female at the residence were later released with no charges. Ryan Joseph Patt, 23, appeared in court on Sept. 16 pleading guilty to three of the eight charges proposed on him.

Patt plead guilty to possession of methamphetamine, possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking and breach of probation. He was sentenced to six months in jail.
