A 24-year-old Kenora man is facing charges following an ongoing investigation into drug trafficking there.
Shortly after 2:30 p.m. on Friday, police tried to arrest a male in the downtown area of Kenora.
A brief foot chase ensued before the male was arrested by police.
A search of the male resulted in the seizure of around eight grams of cocaine and an amount of Canadian currency.
The drugs have a street value of $800.
Police charged the man with possession for the purpose of trafficking, failure to comply with an undertaking, and resisting a peace officer.
He also was charged with possession of property obtained by crime.
The male was held in custody pending a bail hearing yesterday.
