The police have charged a 38-year-old Rankin Inlet man with drug trafficking after they seized a large quantity of drugs and cash from his home on June 6.

The RCMP was dispatched to a residence in the community of about 3,000 to “deal with an unwanted occupant,” a release from the RCMP said.

Drugs seized during the arrest were cannabis and psilocybin, in addition to drug-manufacturing materials, the release said.

Psilocybin is a psychedelic drug that’s usually found in certain types of mushrooms.

The police charged the man with drug trafficking-related offences under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.

The police did not release the man’s name.

Iqaluit’s federal operations section is helping the RCMP with its continuing investigation.

The man was released and will appear in court on Aug. 12 in Rankin Inlet.
