Three people have been charged after police seized a large quantity of crack cocaine in a reserve about 550 kilometres northwest of Thunder Bay on Saturday.

Along with the drugs found in North Spirit Lake First Nation, where just over 260 people live, police also seized $4,400 in cash. They say the street value of the crack cocaine is just under $50,000.

A man and two women are each charged with one count of possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000 and one count of possession for the purpose of trafficking.
