Whitehorse RCMP arrested four people in a drug bust that netted seven kilograms of marijuana Thursday.

Around noon, police raided a residence in Northland Trailer Park and seized the marijuana, which RCMP estimates has a street value of $70,000. Police also seized $5,250 in cash, assorted drug paraphernalia and one motor vehicle.

Police arrested a 42-year-old man from Moberly Lake, BC, a 46-year-old Whitehorse woman and two young offenders. They all face charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking.

RCMP would not release the names of the adults until they appeared in court today. The two young offenders, whose names cannot be released because of their ages, were released on a promise to appear.
