Old Crow is the territory’s only fly-in community and is also a “dry community.” Under the community’s liquor prohibition regulations the possession, consumption, production and importation of alcohol in any form is illegal.

According to an RCMP press release, after a tip from the public and help from the Dawson City RCMP, a 24-year-old man was stopped at the airport attempting to bring in six bottles of whiskey and four bottles of vodka.

In Old Crow the hard liquor has a value of approximately $6,000 or $10 per ounce., the RCMP says.

Police have not identified the man, who is now charged with possession of liquor anywhere in Old Crow and transporting liquor anywhere in Old Crow.

He is scheduled to make a court appearance in Old Crow on Nov. 24.
