Two Thunder Bay residents have been charged in connection with a probe into the black market sale of liquor.

Investigators with city police began an investigation earlier this month after LCBO employees reported suspicious purchasing activity.

Police say they later identified a woman who was allegedly purchasing liquor to illegally resell.

During a search of a residence in the 200 block of Manitou Street on Friday, police seized alcohol with a retail value of about $400, and $1,400 in cash. A man and woman at the home were charged under the Provincial Offences Liquor License Act for unlawfully keeping liquor and unlawfully selling liquor.
