Police net $76K in cash, crack in Thunder Bay drug bust
Thunder Bay police were showing off Friday after what they call a significant drug bust in the city.
Three men from Quebec were arrested when police searched a house on south Algoma Street.
That's where staff sergeant Murray Brown said they seized $76,000 in cash, as well as drugs amounting to about $53,000 in street value.
Brown said the accused men all have ties to Montreal street gangs.
"These individuals, we believe them to be mid-level dealers," he said. "And they had a really slick operation, or so they thought."
Brown said the men were using false identities to evade police. Investigators also found and seized an electronic stun gun.
The accused men remain in custody, pending the outcome of a bail hearing on Monday.
