On January 18, a joint operation by the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) and the KRPF led to the seizure of luggage containing a considerable amount of cocaine, cannabis and alcohol.
Earlier that day, the KRPF had received information from an
anonymous source regarding a possible trafficking of cocaine in the Northern
Village of Kuujjuaq. Some information was corroborated by the KRPF before the
arrival of First Air Flight 866. The KRPF, assisted by the SQ, then seized two pieces
of luggage at the airport.
A search warrant obtained by the police led to the discovery
of 47 bottles of alcohol, 80 grams of cannabis and 17 grams of cocaine. The street
value of the seizure is estimated at $11,250.
