Originally from Grand Prairie, AB, 26-year-old Salah Omar is facing a series drug-related charges.

According to an RCMP news release, the charges stem from offences committed in September 2018 and include one count of possession for the purpose of trafficking, one count of obstructing a peace officer, and four counts of breach of recognizance.

The RCMP’s Federal Investigations Unit arrested Omar on the evening of October 2 after going through three search warrants at two apartment buildings on Con Road in Yellowknife.

Omar then appeared in court in Yellowknife yesterday, on October 3.

RCMP say the investigation is ongoing and will not release any additional details for now.
