Two men are under arrest for drug related charges.

A third man is wanted by RCMP.

RCMP executed search warrants for three Behchoko homes and a vehicle. Police seized marijuana, cocaine and cash, along with a pair of brass knuckles and drug paraphernalia. Detachment Commander Behchoko RCMP, Sgt. Scott Young, says the case is a sign that no town, no matter how small, is drug-free.

This investigation and arrests show that drug trafficking, and the social-ills that accompany it, can be prevalent in any community. The local Detachment members did a great job of dismantling this trafficking network. Drugs destroy communities, and we are committed to taking them off the streets in our communities
