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.
Good job boys, but by now someone will pick up the slack.
Great job to the KRPF, it’s nice to see the 3 different ways to fan out and display money, it’s an improvement on the old photos where you would wear bullet proof vests while standing behind whatever small amounts you seized!
I miss the pictures of the big bags of pot .
It was always fun to see a bunch of stone faced police in bullet proof vests standing behind a ragged looking half ounce and $300 placed on a flag draped ceremoniously across the table, as if it was an impressive and harrowing bust. I miss that era of KRPF photo-ops, it was comedy gold.
Good but not good enough until the drug dealers are nabbed and jailed. It’s the drug dealers. Many behaviours we’re seeing today are from the pills and hard drugs. That’s the sore that needs attention. Yes, get as much alcohol out of our community, legal or illegal, it’s all bad. Too many people can’t handle it well. Those that can handle it, don’t even need the co-op store , we are able to get it legal, and always had it that way. I’m betting my can of beer on the notion that many of our suicides are linked to the hard drugs also. Like a newer kind of push over the edge for those that go near the edge of life in the first place with their issues. So, get the drug dealers. Calling on the public to give more tips to the police, probably save lives.
Like any kind of thing, some get caught others never do.
