Kelowna drug bust



Kelowna Cap News is reporting that Kelowna RCMP seized 1.32 kilograms of suspected fentanyl-laced heroin and 2.1 kilograms of suspected methamphetamine. "Terry Weninger, 44, and Robert Colbon, 59, of West Kelowna, along with Darcy Lenko, 52, of Penticton, each appeared in court and have since been remanded into custody. Police say each have been formally charged with multiple counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.

Lance Wust, 42, of Kelowna has been charged with possession of a controlled substance. After his first appearance he was released by the courts on strict conditions. The remaining individuals arrested, a 52-year-old West Kelowna man, a 22-year-old Vernon man and an 18-year-old Kelowna woman were released from police custody. Each face potential charges and are expected to appear in court at a later date."

I know I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer but that fentanyl-laced heroin looks green. You can kinda tell something is wrong with it. This is the RCMP press release.

  1. The fentanyl-laced heroin that looks green, someone has a pill press to make fake meds?

    1. I was of the understanding that green pills are fentanyl. Heroin and cocaine are white. If someone is buying green heroin or green cocaine then they know something is wrong with it. I was of the understanding that the fentanyl people were passing off as cocaine was white.

    1. Not according to Google:

    2. I stand corrected. I guess I'm just used to seeing pictures of China White. I didn't realize heroin came in different colours.

  3. If it's green then those are most likely fake OxyContin that have been pressed into green 80s with a mixture of fentanyl and other substances.

  4. Most heroin is brown hence the name black tar. Fake OxyContin is made using fentanyl and pressed into green tablets replicating the old 80mg pills that are no longer available. The synthetic powder form of fentanyl coming over from Asia is a white powder. That powder is combined with green dye and pressed into fake OxyContin.

    People buying the fake oxy most likely know that it is fentanyl. However the white powder fentanyl that is being buffed into cocaine is not easy to see without using a drug test kit.

    1. That's what I was thinking. The white fentanyl powder being sold as cocaine would be very hard to know was fake.

  5. perhaps another reason to ban pill presses. a little food dye and you can make anything any colour you wish.

    of course our photo op queen premier isn't going to ban pill presses. she wants to have the federal government do that. In the mean time people can just continue to die while our premier photo op has a continued reason to say, its not my problem, its Ottawa who caused this mess.

    Now as to the colour of the drugs in the picture, might have been bad light, wrong picture, etc.

    what is interesting is the age of those arrested. You'd think they had smartened up by their ages. Those arrested and held are not kids. given the lack of a ban on pill presses wonder if they have a lobby and go to pay to play with the premier. Alberta banned them and has a high fine for those found in possession of them. It doesn't solve the problem but it sends a message the Alberta provincial government is doing something. it may also be easier to hold some one if they are found in possession of a pill press.

    The queen of photo ops is dramatically increasing her advertising budget with the up coming provincial election but refuses to spend that money on dealing with the fent. crisis, like more hospital beds for de toxing and recovery. Oh, well we can come to our own conclusions regarding her attitude towards human life///////////

  6. Heroine can be anything from bleached white to black based on several variables; quality, region of origin and adulterants.what you see in the pic is not green its not fake 80s it is exactly what it said.its a dark brownish colour and they crush the heroin to a fine dust, add fentanyl then hydrate to a paste and cure to a rock form in the oven. Most heroin around in the last few years is crap so everyone wants it jacked with fent. So when eveyone goes on a rant about hang the dealers selling fent, remember that they sell what the addict cry for. Hang all the dealers you want there will be 10 behind each one vying for the position.

    will the courts get serious with these people or more of the same?
