Criminal Gets Stuck In Vent Allegedly Breaking Into Church


(THUNDER BAY, ON) – The Ukrainian church located in the East End fell victim to being broken into. Officers with the Thunder Bay Police Service (TBPS) investigated the situation and have made an arrest.

The suspect suffered undisclosed injuries during the incident and was located stuck in a vent, upside down. He was transported to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre to get treatment. Thunder Bay Fire Rescue was on hand to assist rescuing the suspect. The same suspect is also being alleged to have stolen a cell phone and computer on September 23rd, 2019 from a woman.


25-year-old Petro Kolomeychuk was arrested and charged with:

  • Theft under $5000 (computer and cell phone from September 23).

Kolomeychuk also has outstanding matters before the court still working their way through the situation. There are a total of 4 previous charges. It appears that charges have not been laid yet for the incident at the church as of yet.

Court was unable to attend to his matter immediately this morning due to him being at the hospital.


Sources indicate that Kolomeychuk is currently out on bail with his father as a surety. His father revoked his surety in June or July of this year and a warrant was issued for the arrest of Kolomeychuk. Further, sources indicate that Kolomeychuk has been back living with his father since September while having an active warrant. His parents were both in court this morning attempting to secure the release of their son. It is doubtful that the courts will release Kolomeychuk with his father as a surety.

Kolomeychuk appeared in a Thunder Bay courtroom this morning via a telephone call made to the TBPS officer that is guarding him at the hospital. Justice of the Peace Bruce Leaman was presiding over the matter this morning with Crown Attorney Derrick “The HAMMER” Silvestro to his right and a duty counsel lawyer to his left.

Bail was not granted today for Kolomeychuk. His lawyer, George Joseph requested through duty counsel for a bail hearing to be set on Tuesday, December 10th, 2019.

  1. Santa Clause in reverse?

    What a lowlife p.o.s. and a stupid one to boot.

    Not religious by any means but stealing from a church is particularly low.

    Seems Dumpster Bay society is decomposing at an alarming rate. So many disgusting, thieving, drugging, drunken pieces of trash infesting the streets and causing so much social harm. All compliments of gutless JPs and Judges carrying out the criminal coddling ways of a Liberal govt out of it’s mind.

  2. He needs to stay in and get some help!!!! He has a huge drug problem and I know this as I fell blind to his lies and in 17 mins of him being in my house he robbed me !!!! My food ,my change jar, my smokes and my pot !!!!! Thats the one drug he claims to not use . Bottom line he has a dug problem and needs help.

  3. What a dumb fu*k. They should have told him he would have to starve for a few days and get more skinny before they could come back and get him out. Total waste of resources on trash like that.

  4. Fuck this loser. He ripped me off $400. Kept asking me for money because he had fines to pay or he was going to jail and he would pay me back in a few days. I hate that I fell for it. But I was only 14 and my heart told me to help him out. I’m an adult now and know damn well he ain’t ever pay no fines. He just bought coke and crack with my money. He was 20 at the time and took advantage of a 14 year old girl. Fuck this loser once again.
