(THUNDER BAY, ON) – The preliminary hearing is underway for two suspected drug traffickers that got arrested in Thunder Bay after an incident on Ruttan street that saw police raid the home they were in. One man has extensive ties to Mexico.
26-year-old Adrian Puentes-Reed and 27-year-old Kalid Yousef of Edmonton Alberta, had their preliminary hearing take place this week. A Crown Attorney from Ottawa was flown in to handle this massive criminal court case. Due to a publication ban on the proceedings, we are unable to share any details from court.
The main photo of this article was taken today, outside the Thunder Bay Courthouse (A.K.A. “The In and Out Day Spa”).  Adrian is on the left and his father, who is his surety, is on the right. Below are the police media releases along with previously published articles regarding the massive guns, drugs and money bust.
But first, here is one of his songs. I recognize a few people in this video from various busts around town.

 

The TBPS responded to call for service at a residence in the 100 block of Ruttan Street just before noon on June 15, 2018.
The responding patrol officers observed a handgun, suspected drugs and cash in the residence. An immediate search of the residence resulted in the arrest of two males. The residence was secured awaiting a search warrant to seize the items located within the residence.
Members of the TBPS Intelligence Unit executed the search warrant on the residence at 8:30 p.m. on June 15, 2018. A large quantity of Oxycodone pills, Hydromorphone pills, Marijuana and Cocaine were located along with a large sum of Canadian Currency and handguns with ammunition.

Kalid Yousef, 26 years old of Edmonton, Alberta and Adrian Myles Puentes-Reed, 25 years old of Hamilton, Ontario have each been charges with:
