An Edmonton man is charged with possession of the proceeds of crime after almost $70,000 was seized in a raid in Inuvik.
According to a news release from the RCMP, Ali Omar, 24, was arrested and charged after officers executed a search warrant at a location in the community last Saturday.
They seized the cash, drug paraphernalia, bear spray and a knife.
Police aren’t saying why they believe the money is the proceeds of crime.
Omar is being held in custody and is to appear in Yellowknife Court on Thursday.
