ATIKOKAN — Two people from Thunder Bay face drug charges after a traffic stop.

Provincial police said officers were on patrol in Atikokan around 1 a.m. Friday when a vehicle was seen travelling at a high rate of speed in the area of MacKenzie Avenue.

Officers stopped the vehicle and the resulting investigation led to the seizure of suspected oxycodone, along with cash and items associated with drug trafficking.

A 24-year-old has been charged with drug possession for the purpose of trafficking and driving a vehicle or boat with cannabis readily available. A 27-year-old ha been charged with drug possession for the purpose of trafficking.

Both are being held in custody and are expected to appear in a Fort Frances court later Friday.
