The KRPF executed a search warrant in Kangiqsualujjuaq during the afternoon of April 13, which led to the seizure of over 500 g of cannabis and $760 in cash.

On April 13, KRPF officers responded to a call for service in a Kangiqsualujjuaq residence. Upon arrival, they noticed some drugs in plain sight. Officers then applied and executed a search warrant to search the rest of the home. In total, police seized $760 in cash, 518 grams of cannabis, 22 methamphetamine pills, 9 syringes containing a translucent substance, a glass container with white powdery substance, and other drug paraphernalia.

"It's a relief for me to know that these drugs are off the streets," said Captain Maxime Mercier. "During this pandemic, citizens should concentrate on their health and well-being."

One individual was arrested and detained. The individual faces numerous drug charges and will appear in court by telephone this afternoon.
