Alleged Chronic Thief Arrested Yet Again


(THUNDER BAY, ON) – A warrant for the arrest of 36-year-old Sarah Alatyppo was issued on August 2, 2019 following allegations of a theft that went down at Pennington’s. Officers with the Thunder Bay Police Service (TBPS) are very familiar with Alatyppo, as she has been the focus of numerous investigations.

Within the last 24 hours, police have located, arrested, charged and held her in a holding cell at the TBPS Balmoral Street station pending a court appearance. That court appearance went forward this morning at the Thunder Bay Courthouse.


Justice of the Peace Zelda Kitchekeesic was presiding over court this morning along with a Crown Attorney and a duty counsel worker named Joey Wakefeld. Alatyppo is facing the follow list of charges:

  • Theft under $5000 (Pennington’s).
  • Theft under $5000 (Superstore).
  • Theft under $5000 (Mac’s).
  • Theft under $5000 (Metro 505 Arthur Street).
  • Theft under $5000 (Sears, yes, Sears).
  • Theft under $5000.
  • Failure to comply with bail conditions.
  • Failure to comply with probation order x2.

She isn’t granted bail today, thus she is being transported to the women’s side of the Thunder Bay Correctional Centre where she will stay until her inevitable release. She is scheduled to reappear in court tomorrow, Monday, December 16th, 2019 for another swing at obtaining her freedom back.

  1. Disgusting creeps like this parasite costs everyone else for her thefts. Whether this creep goes to jail and eats three tasty meals a day or gets away with her thefts, everyone else pays. The system is soooo broke in more than one way.

  2. Just give her five years of supervised community working. Shoveling snow, picking up garbage along roadways, helping seniors with house duties and many other items. Then for any day that the supervisor feels she has not worked real hard, add another day to her sentence. Communities need workers like this. No wages, no benefits; just a bed and food.

  3. This is honestly sad! I’m just a couple years older than her and I use to be friends with her 22 years ago when we were students at Westgate. My heart breaks because she use to be such a great person! Her marks were high, she had a part time job when she was 15 and use to play slo-pitch on the same team I was on from 99-2003. Whatever she is going through, she wasn’t alway like this! Jesus, I taught her how to drive standard on my old Tempo in 1998! Sometimes I wish I didn’t get rid of Facebook 8 years ago because we always talked, and we lost touch after I deleted it. Sarah if you see this it’s Michael, you know who I am and my number is the same one since 2000!!! I hope to hear from you because if you’re going through something talk to me!!

    1. Sad to hear. I’d say there’s a 99.9% probability that she’s whacked out on drugs.

      Chances for recovery are likely slim due to the extreme addiction with these new synthetic drugs. Help her if you can but be prepared for disappointment. Been there – done that.
