Two people, one from Brampton and the other from Mississauga, face drug trafficking charges following arrests made in Northern Ontario that police say involved the takeover of a home.
Acting on information they received, police in Thunder Bay began an investigation into a suspected drug trafficking operation that was working out of a home in the area.
On February 9, police raided the home and seized cash and drugs suspected to be fentanyl.
While making the arrests, police say a woman gave police false identification, but subsequent investigating revealed her true identity and an outstanding court order.
Juvonte Hylton, 24, of Brampton is now charged with possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000 and possession of fentanyl for the purpose of trafficking.
As well, Nelowfer Walizadeh, 22, of Mississauga, is charged with possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000, possession of fentanyl for the purpose of trafficking. She is also charged with obstructing a peace officer, and failure to comply with a judicial release.
Both appeared in bail court on February 10 and remanded into custody to face a future court appearance.
