Suspected drugs and a shotgun were seized from a vehicle that briefly fled from police last week and was later abandoned.

Kelowna RCMP say the seizure happened during the early hours of Friday, April 23, following an attempt by an officer to stop the vehicle.

Police say an officer had witnessed the vehicle fail to stop at a stop sign at the intersection of Casorso and Lanfranco roads just before 4 a.m.

Kelowna RCMP say no charges have been laid, but that the investigation is ongoing.
