THUNDER BAY – Thunder Bay Police started the investigation looking into a possible forced confinement of a woman at a Memorial Avenue hotel, and ended up arresting seven people in the Limbrick neighbourhood for drug charges.

Thunder Bay Police Service officers with the Uniform Patrol Branch were originally dispatched to a hotel in the 400 block of Memorial Avenue just before 11:45 am EDT on Thursday, October 1, 2020, following complaints of the possible forcible confinement of a woman.

When officers arrived they learned the victim was at another unknown location and in distress.

The investigation led police officers to an area in Limbrick Street, and further investigation identified a residence of interest in the 100 block of Limbrick Street.

At 2:15 pm EDT officers were met by a male at the front door of the residence of interest. The male initially said he did not know the woman police were searching for before admitting that she was in fact inside the home.

Further investigation led police to locate the woman and confirm she was safe.

During the interaction with the male at the front door, officers observed what appeared to be narcotics being thrown from a nearby window.
