Large drug bust in Merritt

Merritt RCMP have two men in custody following a drug raid last week.

The raid was conducted Thursday, Nov. 1 at an unspecified residence in Merritt where one man was taken into custody.

“Officers found a male subject asleep inside the residence who was arrested, along with a second male resident who was later located and arrested for trafficking. A search of the residence revealed several weapons including a machete, baseball bats, a Taser stun gun, an air soft replica pistol and a loaded 22 calibre handgun that had been previously reported as stolen,” RCMP said in a news release.
