One man is in custody facing charges after Inuvik RCMP say a search warrant at a home in the community turned up cocaine, cash and bear spray.
Mounties executed a search warrant at a residence in the community on Jan 19, allegedly finding crack cocaine, drug paraphernalia, bear spray, and over $7,500 in cash.
Bear spray is a powerful, pepper spray-like weapon used to deter bears or other wild animals.
Mounties arrested David Hevia, 27, of Inuvik.
Hevia is charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, possessing a weapon contrary to a court order and failing to comply with probation.
He is due to appear in Yellowknife court on Wednesday.
