Alcohol Intercepted En route to Natuashish

The RCMP in Happy Valley-Goose Bay seized 11 bottles of alcohol after conducting a search at the Goose Bay Airport of 3 Natuashish women travelling to Natuashish.

Natuashish has banned the sale, purchase and possession of alcohol after a referendum in 2008. Police continue to work with the Chief & Council to curb the illegal use of alcohol within the Band boundary.

This matter is still under investigation.
