A seventy seven year old woman is being ordered to stand trial in the NWT Supreme Court.

Vitaline Lafferty appeared in Yellowknife Territorial Court on Monday, February 27th. The N’dilo grandmother is facing eight counts of trafficking and possession of narcotics.

Charges were initially laid in April 2016 after a traffic stop found Lafferty in possession of marijuana, cocaine, liquid codeine, and over one thousand fentanyl pills.

A total of 29 people are facing charges after Yellowknife RCMP conducted the largest drug bust in ten years. Lafferty’s case is now being dealt with by the Supreme court.
