Around 7:15 Tuesday night the Deschambault Lake RCMP located a vehicle occupied by two women on highway 911 just south of Deschambault Lake village. Members found seventeen 66 ounce bottles of whiskey, two 40 ounce bottles of vodka, a 26 ounce bottle of Sour Puss and a four pack of Smirnoff Ice hidden in the vehicle. The alcohol was suspected for resale in the community.
A short time later a second vehicle was stopped and they found two women passengers were carrying four 66 ounce bottles of whiskey and a 26 ounce bottle of vodka. The four were charged with unlawful keeping under the Alcohol and Gaming Regulations Act and are to appear in court April 3rd. The RCMP note the estimated street value of the alcohol if re-sold in Deschambault Lake would have been well over 3 thousand dollars adding the seizure of illegal alcohol could not have been made possible without the co-operation of citizens that are concerned with the welfare of their community.
