Couple charged with lacing pills with fentanyl in West Kelowna warehouse



Kelowna Infotel News is reporting that "Two West Kelowna residents have been charged in connection with the RCMP raid of a warehouse in West Kelowna where a large number of fentanyl-laced pills were produced. Leslie John McCulloch, 38, and Rebekka Rae White, 27, have been charged with production and possession of a controlled substance."

"Fentanyl-laced drugs have become a serious threat in the Thompson-Okanagan recently. Through April 30, fentanyl was detected alone or with other drugs in 56 per cent of overdoses, according to the B.C. Coroner's Service. Only 31 per cent were linked to fentanyl during the same period last year. There were 308 deaths linked to illicit drug overdoses between January and May 2016 — up 75 per cent over the same period last year when there were 176 deaths, according to a media release from the coroners service. One Kelowna father died earlier this year after taking a drug he thought was heroin but a coroner's report says it was pure fentanyl."

So how do Quentin James and the Hells Angels fit into this picture? Please advise.

  1. I don't know how the H.A. fits in but if they can trace the drugs these people manufactured and sold with F. in them, they ought to be charged with a manslaughter as a min.

    People take drugs. that isn't going to stop. Putting F. into the drugs has to. it kills and it kills fast and it kills often. And yet our dear old premier still refuses to make the pill making machines illegal. I'd suggest the B.C. Lieberals unwillingness to ban the machines, makes them partially responsible for the deaths caused by F. being blended into other drugs.

    1. Indeed. Selling fentanyl pretending it's heroin is predatory.

  2. What ever happened to Q's charges ??? Caught in the post office with 2ozs of cocaine on him. Seized 50k from a PO box. Seized vehicles ? Where's the charge ? Conviction ?

    1. Quentin James? CSO seems to imply they're still in custody and their next court date is October 3rd 2016.
