Thunder Bay Police

THUNDER BAY – NEWS – The Thunder Bay Police Intelligence Unit executed a warrant on March 8, 2018, at north side residence and arrested two individuals who reside in the home for drug-related charges.

The residence located in the 100 block of North Windemere Avenue was entered by officers at 4:30 p.m.

The occupants were arrested without incident and a search of the residence was conducted. Since a risk of exposure existed, biohazard gear was worn during the search given the belief that powdered Fentanyl was present.

Fentanyl can be a highly dangerous drug when handled, especially in illicit circumstances.

Officers seized powdered Fentanyl, a Fentanyl patch, Cocaine and Oxycodone pills along with $13,350 in Canadian currency. The street value of the drugs seized is estimated at $16,000.

Jennifer Eileen Baxter, 46-years-old and Ronald Gagne, 51-years-old have each been charged with four drug possession charges and one drug trafficking charge.

They appeared in court this morning and have been remanded into custody.
