Two people are facing charges after the Fisher Branch RCMP executed search warrants on two residences in Fisher River Cree Nation.

The bust was part of an ongoing investigation, and in total, police found 152 grams of cannabis, over $2200.00 in cash, 25 packs of unstamped cigarettes, five bottles of liquor, and over 60 cans of beer.

A 46-year-old male and a 36-year-old female are facing charges under the Liquor, Gaming, and Cannabis Authority of Manitoba. The Fisher Branch RCMP continues to investigate.

The Manitoba RCMP says they're committed to working with First Nations communities that have enacted by-laws to prohibit the sale and possession of alcohol and have asked to make enforcement a priority. They say the enforcement actions will continue as per the expressed wishes of community leadership.
