The Western Alaska Alcohol and Narcotics Team made a large alcohol bust on Friday.
The WAANT team based in Bethel report that on Friday the 5th, they were called to check on a suspicious postal parcel that was being mailed out. The package was addressed to an adult female in Newtok. WAANT says the packaged contained six bottles of alcohol that had a street value of $18-hundred ($1,800) dollars.
WAANT says the village of Newtok voted to ban the sale and importation of alcohol. A suspect has been identified and the investigation continues.
