On Sunday, Troopers seized four 750ml bottles of liquor from an unnamed passenger at the Nome airport. A charge for importation of alcohol is pending. Also in Nome, Troopers seized one ounce of marijuana from a piece of cargo at a local airline on Monday.
Alaska State Troopers contacted 29-year-old Norma Berry in Kotzebue on Friday evening. Berry had been charged with one count of importation into a dry community and one count of selling alcohol without a license in a dry community. She then failed to appear for arraignment in that case earlier this year.
