Thunder Bay – NEWS – Police have arrested and charged six suspects in connection with a drug trafficking investigation on the city’s north side.

The Thunder Bay Police Service’s Intelligence and Emergency Task Units executed a search warrant at a residential address in the zero-to-100 block of Cumberland Street South just after 4:30 pm on Thursday, November 4.
