THUNDER BAY — Two people from Toronto face drug trafficking charges after city police investigated a possible home takeover earlier this week.

Thunder Bay Police Service officers went to a residential address on the 100 block of Cumberland Street South on Wednesday afternoon after receiving reports of multiple people refusing to leave a home.

Police said the responding officers found multiple people inside, including a pair who were later found to be suspected of selling drugs.

Quantities of suspected fentanyl, crack cocaine, cash and paraphernalia consistent with drug trafficking were seized. The street value of the drugs is estimated at $33,000, police said.

Nouh Salim Souare, 23, and a 17-year-old are charged with two counts of drug possession for the purpose of trafficking, and one count each of possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000 and being unlawfully in a dwelling house.

Both appeared in bail court on Thursday and remain in custody with future court date appearances scheduled.
