RCMP execute search warrant

Officers had grounds to believe a criminal offence was being committed.

An arrest was made at a residence in Nakusp over the weekend.

RCMP applied for a search warrant. The application was sent to the Justice Centre in Burnaby, and was approved.

“We make applications based on reasonable grounds to believe an offence has been committed,” said Corporal Jason Burndred of the RCMP. In this case, the offense was drug related.

On Friday, Nov. 20, local RCMP executed the search warrant at a trailer residence in Nakusp.

As a result of the search, they located methamphetaine, a firearm, hash, and an amount of cash.

The man arrested is known to the authorities.

Johann Blattnig is currently facing several charges, including two counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, and charges of possession of a prohibited weapon. He will appear in court on Nov. 27.
