Fort Liard RCMP seized 29 bottles of vodka and a vehicle allegedly involved in bootlegging on Wednesday. 

The police say seizing a vehicle is a rare move and they hope it will send a strong message to people selling alcohol in the N.W.T. illegally.

Two men and one woman have been charged following liquor seizures in the community. They will appear in court at the end of June.

RCMP in Deline, N.W.T. also seized 30 bottles of vodka at the community's airport the same day. Charges have not been laid in that investigation.
