Police arrested two people after executing a search warrant at a Secord Street home Tuesday, making it the third time in the last year this address has been the subject of a drug-trafficking investigation resulting in charges.

Members of the Thunder Bay Police Service’s Intelligence Unit and Uniform Patrol Branch executed a search warrant at a residential address in the 100 block of Secord Street just after 5:45 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 21. The warrant was obtained as a result of an ongoing investigation into drug trafficking activity at that home.

When police entered the home, a male suspect attempted to flee on foot. Despite the male’s efforts to evade police, officers were able to complete their arrest following a brief struggle.

The accused was found to be in possession of a quantity of suspected crack cocaine and currency believed to have been obtained through drug-trafficking activity. Paraphernalia consistent with drug trafficking was located and seized after a search of the home.

A female accused was also located inside the home and subsequently arrested.

The residence connected to this investigation has been the subject of search warrants relating to drug trafficking three times in the last year. Previous searches have led to numerous drug-trafficking related charges.

Christine Joyce ANDERSON, 59, of Thunder Bay, is charged with:

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

Dion Langford, 25, of Toronto, is charged with:

• Possession of Cocaine for the Purpose of Trafficking
• Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Under $5,000
• Obstruct Peace Officer x 2

Both appeared in bail court on Wednesday, Sept. 22 and were remanded into custody with future appearance dates.
