Police arrested two people following a Sept. 6 drug bust in Iqaluit’s Tundra Ridge area.

The search took place at a home on Tasilik Street, according to a news release from RCMP.

Police seized cocaine, cash, electronic devices and other drug paraphernalia.

A photo of the seized goods, released by the RCMP, also shows a gun and what appears to be bear spray.

A 65-year-old man and 39-year-old woman face charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking, possession of property obtained by crime, unsafe storage of a firearm and unauthorized possession of a firearm.

They are both on the docket to appear in Iqaluit court Monday afternoon.

    Nunatsiaq, you need to post the names of the individuals, it says it on the RCMP site and Facebook page. Iqaluit is going through a crisis with drug issues and now is not the time to hold back. Kids are watching too.

    Enough with the dealers, hope rcmp catches them all! I’m worried about the youngsters.

      Is it because they are southerners that Nunatsiaq is withholding names?

        One of them is from here and not a southerner. There is no sinister conspiracy.

    Why do you not include the details from the news release? The RCMP released their names because they want people to know those details. In the future should we just skip Nunatsiaq altogether and read the RCMP page each day with my coffee instead?
