(THUNDER BAY, ON) – A break and enter investigation that officers with the Thunder Bay Police Service started on July 14th, 2019 has netted some results. The incident happened in the 700 block of Simpson street and some property was stolen from the location.
27-year-old Noel Towegijick has been arrested and charged with the following criminal charges:
- Break and enter, commit the indictable offence of theft.
- Breach probation order (keep the peace and be of good behaviour).
Towegijick is already working his way through the criminal justice system regarding matters from earlier this year, on July 6th. Those charges are brought forward today.
His Worship, Justice of the Peace Raymond Zuliani was presiding over bail court today. Crown Attorney Manon Arbour and duty counsel lawyer Brennen Sacevich were also present, hammering out the issues. Towegijick appeared via video link while in police custody at the Thunder Bay Police Service Station (A.K.A. “Hotel Balmoral”).
Crown Attorney Arbour is not consenting to the release of the accused person today. She mentions how there hasn’t been any supervision plan put before her today for consideration. Court hears from the Crown that this is a reverse-onus situation and that they will put Towegijick to that onus.
Towegijick declines the services of the talented and skilled criminal defence lawyer Brennen Sacevich, who is here today in the capacity of duty counsel. The accused asks for a week remand which will give him ample time to obtain a lawyer and legal aid. The Justice of the Peace suggests that maybe Tuesday would be better. The accused accepts the suggestion from His Worship.
Officers at the police station escort the accused back into his holding cell where he will wait to be transported to the Thunder Bay District Jail (A.K.A. “The Algoma Bed & Breakfast”).
