RCMP say nine guns, including a prohibited one, were seized along with eight garbage bags worth of magic mushrooms and two plastic containers of cannabis in a bust Monday at a rural property on Lind Creek Road near Greenwood.
A 64-year-old man, a 35-year-old man and a 69-year-old woman from Greenwood were arrested for assault causing bodily harm, forcible confinement and uttering threats.
Midway RCMP executed what they described as a “high-risk search warrant execution” with help from several specialized sections from throughout the Okanagan and Kootenays.
Police will be recommending gun charges along with possession for the purpose of trafficking and drug production.
All three have since been released on bail with multiple conditions, including not to possess any guns or ammunition.
Police did not release any details on the initial incident that prompted them to seek the warrant.
