On May 3, 2013, an investigation by the Little Grand Rapids RCMP, assisted by the RCMP Winnipeg Drug Section, resulted in two local men facing numerous charges under the Liquor Control Act.
RCMP report that the suspects, a 50 and a 56-year-old man, are facing charges of taking or carrying liquor for resale and transporting liquor to a place where it may not lawfully be kept.
Police say that both suspects were passengers on board an aircraft that had just landed at the remote community of Little Grand Rapids when the liquor was seized. It is believed the liquor was intended for unlawful resale in Little Grand Rapids.
During the investigation, RCMP seized 10 cases of Windsor Whiskey, five cases of Budweiser Beer and two bottles of Smirnoff Vodka. Both men were issued tickets for both offences with fines of $1,260 for each offence under the Liquor Control Act.
