An early morning search of a pair of units at Bompas Place Apartments in Inuvik, also known as Nova Apartments, on Feb. 11 has resulted in drugs and cash seized.

Charges are pending against two people from Inuvik and two men from B.C.

With the assistance of the NWT Emergency Response team, police entered two apartments at roughly 6:30 a.m. As a result of the investigation, RCMP say they seized 60 grams of crack cocaine, $750 in cash and other drug paraphernalia.

“The Inuvik RCMP will continue to focus on disrupting the supply of these dangerous substances in our community,” said Staff-Sgt. Jesse Aubin, Inuvik detachment commander. “We will not tolerate individuals that come to Inuvik and undertake these illegal activities.”
