(THUNDER BAY, ON) – A heavy police presence was felt near Academy this evening, according to witnesses on location.
REAL Concerned Citizens in the area tell us that the Thunder Bay Police Service’s Emergency Task Unit was on location, busting windows and kicking in doors to a unit at 625 Fulton Blvd.
4 people were seen being escorted out by police, with shiny metal bracelets holding their wrists together.
At least 3 marked police vehicles were on scene along with several ETU units beginning around 8:30 am, and ending roughly around 9:30 pm. Some units are still on location searching the unit.
Although no details are confirmed yet, word on the street in the area is that the unit that was breached by police, had foot traffic consistent with drug trafficking behaviour.
Two videos below show a ETU officer in action, and the second video shows a suspect getting arrested.
