Three Thompson residents have been charged after RCMP seized a large amount of illicit cannabis stashed in Kraft Dinner boxes.
In a release Monday, RCMP said Thompson officers became aware of an alleged illegal drug delivery to Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation, Manitoba around 4 p.m. on Apr. 15, and found a case of Kraft Dinner boxes and a box of baby formula with altered packaging.
Upon opening the packages, RCMP said they found 480 grams of illegal cannabis in the KD boxes and alcohol, Oxycodone and Alprazolam pills in the baby formula packaging. Officers traced the illicit substances to a residence on Martin Bay in Thompson.
RCMP said officers searched the residence around 2 a.m. the next morning, and seized a further 694 grams of cannabis.
Mac Labelle, 45, Tina Spence, 31, and Derek Vivier, 46, all of Thompson, were charged with multiple drug possession and trafficking charges, as well as unauthorized sale of liquor, RCMP said. One woman was arrested and released without charges.
All suspects have been released pending a court date.
