(THUNDER BAY, ON) – The area around the intersection of Secord and Pearl has at least one notorious drug “trap house” which is believed to be trafficking at least crack cocaine.
Residents in the area are fed up with the traffic that flows day and night through the residence and are hopeful police will “disrupt” the operation.
Today, numerous residents in the area reported to TRCCTB.COM that police were at the address, attempting entry into the residence which is believed to have been overtaken by southern Ontario gangs.
At least 4 marked police cruisers and numerous officers were spotted at the home and along the street, conducting an investigation.
The exact nature of the police presence is unconfirmed at this point. The home is the same residence where a suspect who robbed a senior citizen outside a nearby credit union was seen entering after the incident.
”Project Disruption” is an ongoing effort between multiple police agencies that are working to slow down and hopefully stop the enormous influx of drugs flowing into Thunder Bay by often violent southern Ontario gangs. Residents in the area are hopeful that this residence will be shut down even though most are aware it won’t be long before gang members reopen for business as usual.
