Two Nunavik men face drug trafficking and other charges related to a major cocaine seizure in Kuujjuaq earlier this week.

The Nunavik Police Service and the Sûreté du Québec jointly seized 157 grams of cocaine on Monday. They call it the largest cocaine bust Nunavik has seen.

The cocaine is valued at more than $60,000. Police also seized smaller amounts of cannabis and hashish.

Nunavik police arrested two Kuujjuaq men in relation to the bust on Monday: Ned Snowball, 27, and Silas Angnatuk, 51.

Both men have been charged with possessing drugs for the purpose of trafficking, obstruction of police and a variety of Cannabis Act violations.

Both remain in detention until their bail hearings.

Nunavik police said its investigation into the seizures is ongoing.

    now. go after the known drug dealers and bootleggers whom the police know that do not work but have ATV HOINDAS, SKI-DOO’S, 2 – 3 WOODEN Shacks of hunting supplies and rifles, 2 vehicles in their drive way. The police know who they are, the police are told who the drug dealers are but they still do nothing. Any or all ATV HONDAS, SKI-DOO’S, 2 – 3 WOODEN Shacks of hunting supplies and rifles, 2 vehicles should be confiscated. Helping to make peoples lives more miserable.

    The police did a nice job, but way more needs to be done, you are so right, the police needs to go after the bigger one, the one that have a big house, boats, many machines and trucks,

    They also need to look at money laundering being done with poker games and big prizes in a shack. Those are the only one to go after . Every big town as at least few of those rotten apple like that , time to do a big clean up!

    Now if the police know who the dealers are, it maybe just a matter of time, hopefully before the bust is made. It’s a too long a time though. And if police do know who they are, as can be seen by the community, having big house, building a few houses and sold having lots of toys , like atvs, big boats, more than one, many skidoo, trucks etc. Get revenue Canada and revenue Quebec involved to assess the income to the purchase power of these many items that can’t be bought on a regular salary, matched to their job. This seizure today is great, but let’s see more. Because there’s much more.
