A welfare check by police to a home in Thunder Bay on Thursday resulted in drug charges against a city man.

Officers went to the home in the 200 block of Ravenwood Avenue just after 9: 30 p.m. to check on the welfare of a person believed to be in distress. A male, possibly armed, was also inside the home.

He appeared in bail court on Friday and was remanded into custody with a future court appearance date. None of the allegations have been proven in court.
