(THUNDER BAY, ON) – A well-known trap house that has been operating in Limbrick for quite some time has had a visit from the Thunder Bay Police Service this evening.
A “trap house” is a residential living space in which people are present that are selling drugs. Sometimes, the “trap house” allows drug users to linger around and use drugs on the premises, provided they will be spending more money shortly.
Police swarmed unit 18B around 4:30 pm, according to various sources that were in the area at that time.
3 Males, believed to have ties to Toronto-area gangs were seen being taken out of the unit in handcuffs and placed into the back of police cruisers that were waiting nearby. “Calvin”, which is his street name, is one of the males arrested. Ryan ALLI-TODD is also believed to have been arrested as well. A woman, believed to be the person who’s name is on the lease for the unit, was also hauled off in handcuffs.
Thunder Bay has been taken over by drug-dealing, gun-toting gangsters from southern Ontario. At any given time it is estimated that Thunder Bay has approximately 200 gang members from out of town lurking around on the streets. Police work hard to knock down their trap houses and disrupt their business but as soon as a trap house gets knocked down and arrests made, more gang members get sent up from southern Ontario.
Some gangs are utilizing youths (people under 18 years old), that are poor and live in Toronto housing units. They promise them big money and appear to care. These kids are just pawns in their illicit activities. The Dease shooting victim is a drug-dealing youth from southern Ontario.
We will provide further updates to this bust in the morning, when more facts will be available.
