Police issued a bevy of criminal charges against drunk drivers netted in traffic stops over the last two weekends.
The RCMP also doled out several drug-related charges to drivers.
Five people were charged with drunk driving, nine temporarily lost their licences and five were slapped with drug-related charges, according to an RCMP news release.
The traffic stops were conducted across Whitehorse, said Staff Sgt. Roger Lockwood.
Three people were charged with possessing marijuana and crack cocaine under 30 grams, while one person was charged for possessing over 30 grams of pot.
A fifth person was charged with trafficking after police found cocaine, crack cocaine, hash and prescription pills in his car.
The RCMP beef up their traffic stops during the holidays and several more exercises are planned in the next few weeks, said Lockwood.
Police issued 45 less-serious Motor Vehicle Act charges during the same two weeks, according to the release. (James Munson)
