Marijuana, cocaine and ecstasy seized after search

RCMP in Iqaluit have arrested four adults in connection with a drug investigation.

Two men and two women are facing charges of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.

"An investigation this week concluded and culminated in a search warrant in the 1400 block of Iqaluit this week," said Cpl. Denis Lambe with the V Division Federal Policing Section.

"It led to the seizure of a large quantity of marijuana, some cocaine, some ecstasy pills and some Canadian currency."

RCMP say they seized more than a kilogram of marijuana in Wednesday's search.

Lambe said the investigation had been going on for several weeks.

The four accused have been released from custody with the conditions of an undertaking. Their first court appearance is Feb. 25.
