Break and Enter Thief Tracked Down by Toboggan Trail


(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Thunder Bay Police Service officers followed toboggan tracks in the early morning hours of Monday, Jan. 6 to the scene of an unreported break-in and an accused male who was in possession of stolen property from the scene.

Uniform Patrol Branch officers on general patrol in the area North Cumberland and McIntyre Streets just after 2:15 a.m. noticed a suspicious male hauling unknown items with a toboggan.


Police exited the cruiser and began following a set of footprints along with the toboggan trail in the freshly fallen snow. This led the officers to a residential address in the 200 block of McIntyre Street where a male in possession of possible stolen items was located.

Meanwhile, officers followed the toboggan trail in the opposite direction, which led them to a local business.

Police located a trailer unit that appeared to have been the site of a break-in, and featured various items similar to what the suspicious male had in his possession.


Further investigation revealed the trailer had been broken into and the items in the male’s possession were stolen.

A 36-year-old Thunder Bay man was charged with Theft Under $5,000, Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Under $5,000, and Breach of Probation.

Police released the man on a promise to appear with a future court date of Feb. 7, 2020. Police have not released the name of the man. We will get that information on February 7th.

  1. Must have been so high he figured he was being taped on America’s Most Funniest videos. It dont get dumber than that. LOL

    1. Yeah. That is pretty f*cking stupid to say the least.

      As I’ve been saying. Most of these asshole criminals are likely suffering from FAS or drug related brain damage. Too stupid to be criminals and too f*cking lazy to work.

      To make matters worse, there’s literally many thousands of them destroying the city and more coming everyday due to Dumpster Bay’s “no qualification required” welfare policy. Easy to get, inexhaustible welfare draws these losers to the city by the thousands.
