RCMP have arrested 14 people in relations to a drug trafficking operation in Yellowknife, Dettah, and N’Dilo.
Police says dealers utilized a network of taxi cabs, street dealers, and stash locations to distribute drugs.
And while monitoring the network, it provided incredible insight to the extent of drug abuse in the communities.
The dealers worked in shifts, shared vehicles, and communication devices.
During the raids completed by law enforcement officers, items were seized that are believed to be purchased by drug money, like Gucchi bags, flat screen TV’s, and a snow machine.
This information was shared at a RCMP press conference on Wednesday afternoon.
Matt Peggs, the Detachment Commander for Yellowknife RCMP in was a speaker at the press conference.
He says drug trafficking affects all people in the community.
