A woman travelling with her three kids was smuggling marijuana in a package of baby wipes and a child’s pink backpack when she was nabbed by RCMP at the community airport in Poplar River, police say.
The mom, 27, and her kids had flown into the community on Tuesday, and the RCMP, acting on a tip from the public, made the arrest.
The woman has been charged with possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking. She was released on a promise to appear in court in Poplar River on Jan. 14.
Poplar River is located on the northeastern coast of Lake Winnipeg, about 400 kilometres north of Winnipeg.
Anyone with information on illegal drug activity is asked to call their local police agency or RCMP detachment.
