“At approximately 9:45 a.m, on April 18, Yellowknife RCMP received a call for service regarding an alleged break and enter at the downtown liquor store. When officers arrived on site, they noticed that a front window had been smashed and that an amount of alcohol was missing from the store,” RCMP said in an email.

The smashed window beside the front door has since been replaced with a plastic sheet cover.

In a Facebook post, the liquor store said a break-in took place sometime after 3 a.m. on Saturday.

The post asked for anyone with information on the “sole male individual responsible” to contact police.

The incident came just over a day after new restrictions on the amount of alcohol one customer can purchase in a single day in the NWT took effect.
