On May 27, 2023, at approximately 9:10 am, a Controlled Drugs and Substances Act warrant was executed by multiple RCMP units at a residence in the Crestview area of Whitehorse. The operation was led by the Yukon RCMP Crime Reduction Unit (CRU), with the assistance of officers from Whitehorse Detachment, the Yukon RCMP's Critical Incident Program (CIP), as well as Emergency Response Team (ERT) members from both the RCMP "G" and "K" Divisions. As a result two males were safely taken into custody. A search of the property resulted in police seizing sizable amounts of Canadian currency as well as a substance believed to be cocaine.
This investigation is ongoing and further information will be provided once available.
Yukon RCMP would like to thank the public for their cooperation during this operation.
