THUNDER BAY – Local police continue their battle against illegal drugs.

Members of the joint task force, Project Disruption, executed a search warrant at a residence in the 200 block of Cumming Street last night. As a result, 2 Scarborough men are facing multiple charges.

TBPS Emergency Task Unit officers entered the residence just before 9:30 p.m. Two males fled through a window as officers entered the apartment. Both were pursued and arrested. A subsequent search of the residence led to the seizure of crack cocaine and a substance suspected of being fentanyl along with cash and a replica firearm.

The street value of the drugs is estimated at $25,404 along with approximately $23,000 in cash.

20-year-old Dishanti Ezekiel Dillon and 19-year-old Tyrese Oneal Wright, both from Scarborough Ontario, are charged with:

• Possession of a Controlled Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking (2 counts each)
• Possession of Property Obtained by Crime over $5,000
• Obstructing a Peace Officer

Both men have been remanded into custody for their next court appearance on May 23, 2019.
