A Yellowknife man has been charged after police seized crack cocaine from a local residence last Friday.
Altogether, police executed two search warrants as part of a drug investigation.
The first was at an apartment complex downtown, where a man was found in possession of five grams of crack cocaine, an undisclosed amount of Canadian currency and other drug paraphernalia.
That same day, RCMP executed a second search warrant at a residence near the Multiplex, where they found small amounts of crack cocaine and other paraphernalia.
A total of 10 people were arrested during the second raid – including seven youth – however no charges are pending at this time.
A 63-year-old man has been charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking in connection with the first bust.
He’s scheduled to make his next court appearance on Mar. 21.
