Four people will appear in a St. Catharines court tomorrow after being charged in relation to a drugs bust in Thorold earlier this week.

The Niagara Regional Police Services says that after a nearly three-months-long investigation into the distribution of illegal drugs throughout Niagara Region, street crime detectives obtained a search warrant and moved in on a residence in Thorold on Wednesday (April 6).
