After finding 95 rocks of crack cocaine in his possession, Whitehorse RCMP charged 22-year-old Darnell Avinash Naiker with one count of possession for the purpose of trafficking.

On Tuesday, at approximately 4:46 p.m., police arrested Naiker.

The Surrey, BC, man was the fourth person busted for drugs in six weeks.

College student charged with sex assault

An encounter turned ugly at Yukon College on March 15.

A man and woman met at a local bar that night.

Later, they went to the man’s room in Yukon College’s mature dorm.

There, the man “forced himself on the female despite her protests,” according to an RCMP release.

She left the room and immediately contacted police.

The victim was taken to the Whitehorse General Hospital where she was examined and released.

Alcohol was a factor in the incident, say the RCMP.

Thirty-seven-year-old John Carter White was charged with one count of sexual assault.

White has been released from custody and is scheduled to appear in court on April 25.

He is to have no contact directly or indirectly with the victim and cannot go to her residence.

He can’t drink or possess alcohol.

RCMP is continuing its investigation. (LC)
