Island Lake Man is charged after cocaine; Percocet found


One person is being charged with multiple drug crimes after police intercepted a shipment of illegal narcotics headed for a northern community.
Last week on Wednesday the Island Lake RCMP conducted a drug investigation involving a male passenger who was on a flight from Winnipeg to Island Lake. The passenger was suspected of trafficking illegal drugs.
A search led police to three large packages that contained 140 grams and cocaine along with 100 Percocet pills.
As a result of the find police laid charges against the man. Twenty-six-year-old Lawrence Ashley McIvor from Sandy Bay First Nation was arrested and charged with two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking. McIvor was remanded into custody and was slated to appear in court in Winnipeg at a later date.
The investigation continues according to the Island Lake RCMP.
