RCMP’s V division in Iqaluit announced, June 3, the arrest of two men at a private residence in the city, and the subsequent seizure of seven pounds of marijuana (3,175 grams), pictured, in a May 27 drug bust. Also seized were $16,500 in cash, eight cellphones, a laptop and weighing scale. Police charged one man with possession for the purpose of trafficking and resisting arrest, and a second on counts of trafficking and possession of “property obtained through crime,” said Sgt. Yvonne Niego. Police made the arrests and seizures after a six-month investigation and suspect the drugs were meant for resale in Iqaluit. (PHOTO BY PETER VARGA)
