Plea Deal Reached with Yellowknife Drug Trafficking Boss

RCMP Office in Yellowknife

A Yellowknife man who ran a drug operation connecting Calgary drugs to at least four NWT communities including Yellowknife, has pleaded guilty to two charges.

They are possessing and conspiring to traffic cocaine, and trying to arrange for a man to be assaulted.

Norman Hache entered the pleas in Northwest Terriritories Supreme Court yesterday.

Crown and defense counsels agreed on a five-year sentence minus time served.

The deal also means other related charges will likely be dropped.

The judge has yet to accept the terms of the deal and determine a sentence.

Hache, 36, is a former owner of Jerry’s Delivery Service in Yellowknife. He has been in custody at the North Slave Correctional Centre since his arrest in April 2016.

RCMP arrested Hache and eight other people after raiding five different locations in the city.

Police seized fentanyl, cocaine, crack cocaine, psilocyin , which is a compung in mushrooms, marijuana and anabolic steroids.

Cash and prohibited weapons were also seized by the authorities.
