Three people face charges relating to drug trafficking after cocaine was seized during the search of a north-side home Wednesday night.
Members of the Thunder Bay Police Service’s Intelligence Unit, with assistance from the OPP’s Organized Crime and Enforcement Bureau, executed a search warrant at a residential address in the 200 block of Secord Street just after 10:10 p.m. The warrant was obtained as a result of an ongoing investigation into drug trafficking activity at that address.
Police arrested a female suspect and transported her to the TBPS headquarters at 1200 Balmoral Street.
A search of the home led to the seizure of a quantity of suspected crack cocaine, a quantity of suspected powder cocaine, cash, and paraphernalia consistent with drug trafficking. The estimated potential street value of drugs seized totals about $11,000 CAD.
Brenda Lee HARPER, 40, of Thunder Bay, is charged with:
• Possession of Cocaine for the Purpose of Trafficking
• Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Under $5,000
The accused appeared in bail court on Thursday, Oct. 28 and was remanded into custody with a future appearance date.

The names of those accused individuals are being withheld pending the charges against them being sworn before the courts.
