Man Well Known to Police – Arrested

FN5701On December 8, 2010, investigators from the Southeast District office of the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit, working with officers from the Kelowna RCMP Property Crime Unit and the Kelowna Detachment’s Downtown Enforcement Unit, executed a firearms search warrant at the Kelowna residence of 36 year old Matthew Henry Schrader, who is well known to police.

As a result of the search, investigators seized not only paraphernalia associated to drug trafficking, but also a loaded 45 caliber semi-automatic pistol, 45 caliber ammunition, a quantity of what is believed to be cocaine, $7,000.00 cash, body armor, and a nylon gun holster.

Schrader was taken into custody without incident, away from his residence, and is now charged with five counts, including multiple weapons offences and possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking. He was released from custody on multiple conditions and will be appearing in court on December 16, 2010.
