An Iqaluit man faces drug trafficking charges after police raided a home as part of their “Take Back The Night” series of enforcement operations.

David DeVries faces four counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking and is to appear in the Nunavut Court of Justice Oct. 5.

In a news release, police say they found five ounces of cannabis resin, hashish, hash oil, liquid THC capsules, marijuana, “trafficking paraphernalia,” and $500 in cash. RCMP put the value of the pot seized at $5,000.

Police also made 27 arrests and filed eight criminal charges including two for impaired driving, two for mischief, two for assault and one for vandalism.

Meanwhile, vehicle enforcement checks led to three charges and three warnings “under various territorial acts,” an RCMP news release stated.
