THUNDER BAY — Two teens from Toronto have been arrested after allegedly taking over a local apartment for drug trafficking.
Thunder Bay police said officers were sent to a residential address on the 200 block of Pearl Street Wednesday afternoon to conduct a wellness check due to evidence of a home takeover situation.
Responding officers found two male suspects inside the home, with one attempting to hide from police while the other tried to barricade himself in a room.
The two suspects were arrested without further incident and were taken to the police station.
Officers seized quantities of Oxycodone pills, crack cocaine, cash and paraphernalia consistent with drug trafficking.
An 18-year-old and 17-year-old, both from Toronto, face two counts of drug possession for the purpose of trafficking, possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000, obstructing a peace officer, and unlawfully being in a dwelling.
Both appeared in bail court on Thursday and remain in custody with future court appearance dates.
