Police enjoyed an unexpected and convenient drug bust on Wednesday night in Yellowknife.

RCMP members working on a totally different investigation noticed something suspicious about a couple of vehicles in a parking lot on Range Lake Road.

They went over to check it out and ended up arresting four people for drug-related offences – including one individual who tried, and failed, to escape on foot.

Packages of cocaine and five fentanyl pills are believed to have been seized.

Charges are pending against the others.
