The woman was allegedly attempting to send packages containing both drugs on a flight to Kangiqsualujjuaq on May 22, 2020. Police also allege she was trying to ship cannabis to the community on April 22.

Police say the shipments were intercepted before reaching their destination.

According to the Kativik Regional Police Force, the woman is charged with one count of trafficking and one count of possession for the purpose of trafficking methamphetamines, and one count of distributing more than 30 grams of dried cannabis, as well as one count of possession of dried cannabis for the purposes of distributing it.

The arrest was made by a new joint investigation team made up of Kativik police force members and the Quebec provincial police with resources to fight contraband, according to the news release from the Kativik police.

    Hey, don’t the public have a right to know who this person dealing in drugs is? How do we alert our children away from such a person, just saying?

    Mickey mouse Kroft and the Quebec police are a joke. They all know who the drug dealers and sellers are and they are not doing anything about it.We still have violence, murders, rapes, suicides molestations still happening in our communities.With the drug dealers and suppliers are also bootleggers than our communities, children and teens will fall between the cracks and the krg and Quebec governments will say, we did not know this was happening… same BS different day….
