RCMP raid "drug house" in Kamloops

Around 8:20 PM Friday evening members of the Kamloops RCMP Special Projects Unit and the Southeast District Emergency Response Team executed a search warrant for firearms in an upstairs apartment at 352 Seymour St. The location is known by police to be an active drug house, a news release from the RCMP stated this morning.

Seven adults, 4 men and 3 women were in the apartment at the time, the RCMP said.
Six people were detained and questioned by police at the scene prior to their release. An adult female associated to the apartment was arrested and returned to the RCMP office.
A "distraction device" was deployed by the Emergency Response Team upon entering the apartment.
Smoke from the device set off smoke detectors in the area but there was no fire.
There were no injuries incurred during the operation, the news release said.
