Police, who also found scales and “drug paraphernalia,” said they were led to that location by “tips received from the public.”

Shawn Edwards, 41, of Iqaluit, and Wendy Kootoo-Kovic, 37, of Iqaluit, are charged with possession of marijuana for the purposes of trafficking and possession of property obtained by crime.

They are to appear in court May 27 in Iqaluit.
