A traffic stop led to the seizure of dozens of bottles and cans of alcohol in Délįne this past weekend.

According to a news release, on Saturday police conducted a traffic stop on the ice road going into the community.

Officers then seized 20 375-mL bottles of vodka, a bottle of whiskey, 24 beer cans and six coolers.

Corporal Philip Unger is the Délįne detachment commander.

In the release, he said, “The alleged sale of illegal alcohol is very concerning, and as a community, we cannot tolerate these illegal activities.”

Police did not name the driver and passenger, but said both are facing charges under the Liquor Act.
