Kelowna's Cocaine Christmas

"It's a shoe store, not a drug store." so we're told. But the window display, would suggest differently. Steven Johns Shoes, had a front window display of a gold reindeer beside a table with what looked like a line of cocaine and a rolled up dollar bill sitting on top of it.

The reindeer was beside a Christmas tree donned with "little baggies" filled with a cocaine like substance (Ajax) and measuring utensils. The display went up on Sunday, and store employee Mary-Anne Litzenberger says the phone has been ringing off the hook with complaints. "This was not my motivation, it was the owner's. He wanted to shock (people) and that is exactly what he did."

Steven Johns, set up the display and took off for Mexico leaving Lizenberger to deal with the brunt of his actions. Johns told Lizenberger before he left not to take the display down for any reason, and now she fears she could be reprimanded for her actions. "I told Steven it would kill his business, but he said what business? It has been really slow, so I guess we kicked it up a notch."

If the business has been really slow, how can he afford to go on a holiday to Mexico? That's rather suspicious. The reindeer snorting cocaine is one thing but the signs that say Let it Blow, Let it Blow, Let it Blow is another.


  1. An outrageous display that means no one should ever pay this guy one penny from their wages. These interior towns are hotbeds of silent destruction from crack & meth now. Whole areas of Vernon & Kelowna are now said to be full of crack people, living that terrible life, these drugs kill off folks' existence here. Of course this idiot is somehow involved.

  2. The link I gave, about the bust of an amazing seventeen kilos of coke in Kelowna; where the guy got off, should make us all very concerned about the Interior.

    The apartment was a stash house, sometimes with the original kilos from Mexico stacked up five feet high! The coke was re-distributed constantly; in these HUGE amounts, from his place, in a small Interior town. Why there in Kelowna? Why...?

    As I've said, the mere fact of this busy place's existence should wake us up big-time. There is a huge story here, far more important, and deadly serious; than the fact that he only got house-arrest!
