Liquor destined for Pangnirtung, Kimmirut, Iqaluit
The Nunavut RCMP drug division made four illegal liquor seizures April 19 and April 20, resulting in Liquor Act charges against three Iqaluit residents of keeping liquor illegally for sale.
Police said April 24 in a news release that they believe the booze was intended to be sold in Pangnirtung, Kimmirut and Iqaluit.
During their seizures, cops grabbed 92 bottles of liquor and 72 cans of beer.
They estimate that the seized goods had a resale value of about $22,000.
Police learned of the illegal liquor after getting “tips from the public.”
They have not yet released the names of the three people facing Liquor Act charges.
