A mother and daughter from Alberta are facing drug trafficking charges after being arrested in Watson Lake.
One Saturday, June 28, Watson Lake RCMP executed a search warrant at a home in an RV park in Watson Lake.
Two women were found inside and taken into custody without incident. The search of the RV found several items including eight individually wrapped packages of crack cocaine weighing 2.4 grams, more than $4,000 and an extendable baton, police said in a news release.
Michelle Stertz, 45, and her daughter, Amber Stertz, 20, both from Edmonton, have been charged with possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.
This marks the fifth search warrant executed by the Watson Lake RCMP since April in relation to drug trafficking.
“The RCMP remains committed to disrupting the flow of illegal drugs within the communities it serves,” the police said.
