Two Yukoners are facing drug charges after arrests this week.
Police say officers witnessed what appeared to be drug transactions going on inside a vehicle by a downtown hotel Tuesday afternoon.
“The female driver of the vehicle was approached by several people who offered what appeared to be cash in exchange for what appeared to be crack cocaine,” Yukon RCMP said in a statement.
“Following several of these open transactions, the vehicle exited the area and was stopped.”
Police claim both the woman and a man in the car were in possession of crack cocaine. The drug was also found in the vehicle, officers say.
The 39-year-old Whitehorse woman was arrested and charged with trafficking cocaine and possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.
A 54-year-old man, also of Whitehorse, has been charged with possession and obstruction.
