RCMP have laid charges against two people after they uncovered alcohol being smuggled into a dry First Nation.

On May 3, officers seized several cases of beer and whiskey from a plane that had just landed in Little Grand Rapids.

RCMP said they believe the alcohol was intended to be sold in the community, which is a dry reserve.

Now, a 50-year-old man and a 56-year-old man are facing multiple charges in connection with the seizure.

Both were given tickets worth over $1,200.
