Mounties have charged four people in connection to three different drug busts that happened at the end of April.
All incidents occurred in downtown Whitehorse.
On April 29, RCMP was called to a downtown hotel to remove an unwanted man, said Const. Christine Grant with the Whitehorse detachment. When they arrived, police found drugs in the room. They seized marijuana, crack cocaine, drug trade materials and cash. Two men, a 54-year-old and 42-year-old, were arrested and charged with possessing drugs for the purpose of trafficking.
On April 27, a 38-year-old woman was charged for trafficking cocaine after an officer stopped her in the same hotel parking lot. The officer approached the car after witnessing what he thought was a drug deal. When the female driver rolled down her window, the officer noticed she was impaired. A search found cocaine in the vehicle.
On April 20, police arrested a 34-year-old man near another downtown business after an officer saw him toss a cellphone and cocaine on the ground. He was arrested and charged with possessing drugs for the purpose of trafficking and for breaking court orders to be of good behaviour and not have a cellphone.
The police are not disclosing the amounts of drugs involved in each instance, and the three incidents are not believed to be connected to each other, said Grant.
