Nunavik police seize $7K in bootlegged alcohol, cash
Five in Kuujjuaq face fines
The Kativik Regional Police Force and the Sûreté du Québec teamed up to seize more than $7,000 worth of bootlegged alcohol and cash in Nunavik last week.
The KRPF said in a news release that they received a number of tips from the public alleging bootlegging in Kuujjuaq, which allowed the police to execute two search warrants in the Nunavik community last Thursday, Sept. 24.
Along with the SQ, the KRPF seized 39 bottles of liquor, 156 cans of beer and about $5,000 in cash.
The KRPF said five people each face $1,200 in fines for breaking Quebec’s liquor laws.
