Two men are charged under the Northwest Territories Liquor Act after RCMP say they sold alcohol in downtown Yellowknife to vulnerable residents.
Police state in an email that through an investigation that began in November and ended last month, the NT RCMP General Investigation Section and Crime Reduction Unit charged the individuals.
“This is not a victimless crime. Yellowknife RCMP is committed to make our community safer and we are being proactive in stopping this kind of activity” states Staff Sergeant Yannick Hamel, Operations Manager of Yellowknife RCMP.
A 41-year-old man, and a 38-year-old man are to appear in court on March 3.
Their names have not been released.
