Thunder Bay – NEWS – Police arrested four, including a Mississauga man, and seized cocaine and crack cocaine following the search of a north-side home Thursday.

Members of the Thunder Bay Police Service’s Intelligence Unit, with assistance from the Emergency Task Unit and the OPP’s Organized Crime Enforcement Bureau, executed a search warrant at a residential address in the 100 block of College Street just before 6:30 pm on Thursday, December 9. 2021.

The warrant was obtained as a result of an ongoing investigation into drug-trafficking activity.

A number of suspects were located and detained inside the home.  Two suspects were charged with drug-trafficking related offences. The two other suspects attempted to provide officers with false names, however, a continued investigation confirmed their real identities.

Four accused were transported to the TBPS headquarters at 1200 Balmoral Street.

The estimated potential street value of drugs seized exceeds $21,000 CAD.

Liban YUSUF, 26, of Mississauga, Ont., is charged with:

• Possession of Cocaine for the Purpose of trafficking
• Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Under $5,000

All four appeared in bail court on Friday, December 10. 2021.

None of the accused are considered guilty until proven so in a court of law.
