Duo Caught Trying to Smuggle Liquor into Dry Community

RCMP Crest LogoTwo people have been ticketed for trying to smuggle liquor into a dry Manitoba community.

RCMP intercepted the pair at the Poplar River airport on Tuesday afternoon after being tipped off. A search of their luggage turned up 24 bottles, 750 ml in size, of spirits.

The liquor was seized by police as Poplar River is a dry community that prohibits the use of alcohol.

A man and a woman, both 25, were issued tickets of $1,260 each under the Liquor Control Act.
