Cranbrook RCMP arrested two people, who are now facing a number of charges, after guns, drugs and stolen items were found during a police search.
Police began their investigation on May 18th, when Cranbrook RCMP was called about a resident being threatened with a gun and had some items stolen. Officials note that two suspects were identified at the time.
Southeast District Emergency Response Team and members of the Southeast District Containment Team were brought in to help execute the search warrant, due to the nature of the report and the possibility of firearms being involved.
Police said two people were arrested at a residence along Mission Place the following day.
“The residence was searched and several stolen firearms, along with suspected methamphetamines, fentanyl and marijuana were located,” said Cranbrook RCMP officials. “Several stolen items and over $9,000 in cash were also seized.”
Police said 30-year-old Adam Jolliffe, from Armstrong, B.C., is facing a number of charges, including break and enter, robbery, unlawful confinement, uttering threats and a number of firearms charges.
According to RCMP officials, 23-year-old Cranbrook resident Kaylee O’Connor has been charged with break and enter, robbery, unlawful confinement, and possession of stolen property.
Both people have been released from custody and are expected to appear in court at a later date.
