Kelowna RCMP executed a search warrant on a house in Kelowna (Thursday) January 17, finding various quantities of mushrooms, meth, heroin, marihuana and prescription pills.

The resulting find allowed police to charge Michael Semchyshyn with multiple counts of Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking.

Kelowna RCMP Special Enforcement teams also seized five replica firearms, cash and paraphernalia consistent with trafficking drugs at the residence on the 800 block of Fuller Avenue.

Two persons were arrested inside the residence.

The firearms, two of which were modelled after sub-compact machine guns, were all determined to be pellet guns, but appeared very realistic until examined closely.

Semchyshyn faces multiple charges of Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking and Possession of a Controlled Substance.

A 37-year-old Kelowna woman also faces a potential charge of Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking and was released on a Promise to Appear for Court a court date in February.
