The Yellowknife RCMP have arrested two people for possession of crack cocaine and drug trafficking paraphernalia following a Controlled Drug and Substances Act investigation.

The two individuals, a 43-year-old woman and a 41-year-old man, have been arrested and charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking. Their names are not being released in order to protect the identity of a youth related to the suspects who, while not related to the investigation, was at the premise of the arrest.
