Thunder Bay Police Service officers were dispatched to the zero-to-100 block of Junot Avenue North just before 3 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 17 following reports of a disturbance at a residence.
Firefighters were already on scene when police arrived and notified officers that someone, possibly a tenant in distress, had pulled the fire alarm.
An investigation led officers to a specific unit within the residence. Police continued to investigate and eventually located the apartment unit and occupants believed to be involved in the original disturbance.
While police were speaking with the tenants they noticed a bag containing what was believed to be a controlled substance.
As a result a male was arrested for possession for the purpose of trafficking.
Officers also located a sum of Canadian currency and two loaded handguns with suspected prohibited magazines.
In the afternoon hours of Tuesday, Sept. 17 officers with the service’s Intelligence Unit executed a search warrant on the residence and found a quantity of a substance believed to be cocaine.
