A Yellowknife man has been charged with the illegal sale of alcohol.

On June 29, Yellowknife RCMP received an anonymous complaint of a black Honda Accord seen several times parked downtown engaged in possible suspicious activity.

With the assistance of the public the Yellowknife RCMP General Investigation Section, began an investigation into the possible illegal sale of alcohol.

As a result of the investigation, officers arrested and charged 38-year-old David Girvan of Yellowknife.

The RCMP seized about $350 in cash, 9 bottles of Private Stock, 4 bottles of Smirnoff Vodka and a 1999 Honda Accord.

“The alleged sale of illegal alcohol is not acceptable in our community and is not victimless,” says Marie York-Condon, Northwest Territories RCMP Media Relations. “We appreciate the assistance of the public in reporting the suspicious activity and encourage anyone who witnesses this type of activity, to report it immediately.”

Girvan is scheduled to appear in court in Yellowknife on Tuesday, August 7th.
