(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Once again, officers with the Thunder Bay Police Service (TBPS) have arrested 32-year-old Steven “Hogan with a Shotgun” Hogan. Allegations are that he stole a white Cadillac Escalade from a man. He was out on bail at the time and is further alleged to have breached his bail condition to not be in contact or communication with L.C. Further, the criminal is also on a probation order dated October 18th in which he is supposed to be “keeping the peace and be of good behaviour”.
During the course of his arrest, it is alleged he attempted to pull away and flee officers. Police managed to wrangle in the alleged criminal, place him under arrest and then transport him down to the Balmoral Street police station.
Hogan appeared in a Thunder Bay Courthouse courtroom this morning via video link while in police custody at the Balmoral Street TBPS station. Justice of the Peace Zelda Kitchekeesic was presiding along with Crown Attorney Katrina “Lock ’em UP!” VanKessel and working the duty counsel desk was criminal defence lawyer Aranka Golphy. Hogan is facing the following new charges:
- Theft of a motor vehicle (white Cadillac Escalade).
- Breaching bail conditions (not to contact L.C.).
- Resisting police (pulling away and attempting to flee).
- Breaching probation order (keep the peace and be of good behaviour).
Hogan has a number of outstanding matters already working their way through the criminal justice system. We will have that information available at the end of this article in the “History’ section. Court doesn’t grant Hogan his release from custody and he is now being shipped off to the overcrowded and underfunded Thunder Bay District Jail, where he is likely to remain until his release.
He is scheduled to appear back in court on Wednesday, December 18th, 2019 for a bail hearing.

Trap House Bust “Trucker Jen” and “Hogan with a Shotgun”
(THUNDER BAY, ON) – At approximately 6:00 pm this evening, hardworking officers with the Thunder Bay Police Service, including members of the Emergency Task Unit descended on a south side trap house.
The home, in the 1300 block of Broadmore Ave, near Frederica Street, had police surround and enter the home.
Jennifer “Trucker Jen” Lunn-Hogan was arrested along with with her son Steven “Hogan with a Shotgun” Hogan and about 3 other people who were also in the home.
Residents in the area claim that the home had a substantial amount of foot traffic that seemed consistent with drug trafficking trap houses. Crack is a possible substance that may have been trafficked out of the residence.
Hogan with a Shotgun was previously arrested at a Brodie Street residence not long ago.
Anyone with photos of the police presence, or videos, are asked to text them in to 807-355-8917 or email email@example.com
Trap house is only “allegedly” a trap house. None of the charges have been proven in court.

He’s going to the Thunder Bay Jail.
His next court date is February 7,2019.
The Director of Communications at TBPS knows that HOGAN is charged but is not telling the public. He also knows the name of the other person with gun but isn’t telling the public about man at large with gun.
TIME FOR A NEW DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS AT TBPS
ANOTHER MAN WANTED ON ARREST WARRANT CAUGHT BY TBPS IN THE 300 BRODIE STREET SOUTH INCIDENT.
DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS AT TBPS NEVER TOLD PUBLIC ABOUT THIS WANTED INDIVIDUAL.
Appearing on Monday, February 4, 2019 by video to Bail Courtroom 104 from the TBPS Station is 28 year old (turns 29 on February 5) JASON MAYER (pictured right).
MAYER is wearing a black “MISFITS” T-shirt. His hair is long and thinning with visible patches missing. He looks much older than 29 years.
Her Worship, Justice of the Peace Zelda Kitchekeesic is presiding. Provincial Crown Attorney Andrea Mason.
MAYER has a lengthy criminal record. He’s been wanted on an arrest warrant since December 17,2018. He’s never been featured on Wanted Wednesday.
MAYER IS facing charges of theft and breaching a conditional sentence order. He was recently sentenced for a string of property crimes that the Director of Communications at TBPS never told the public about. He received a Conditional Sentence Order.
THE BRODIE STREET INCIDENT.
COLLECTION NIGHT WITH A GUN
Just before 3 am on Sunday, February 3, 2019, there were allegedly 2 armed men, one with a shotgun and another with a revolver who showed up at 300 Brodie Street South. The front window of door was broken and armed men entered the building declaring that it was payment collection night.
Someone called 911 and reported the 2 armed men in the building.
Police respond to the location with the Emergency Task Unit to contain the area and evacuate residents. The 2 armed individuals are already gone.
TBPS locate JASON MAYER in a domestic dispute situation who was WANTED on arrest warrants but never featured on Wanted Wednesday or any other day.
There are no indications that MAYER was involved with the weapons. It is not known if he was the one who was being collected upon either.
The police remained on the Brodie Street scene for about 12 hours.
It is not known if any others were arrested.
Strangely enough, this whole incident might have been avoided had the Director of Communications notified the public about this wanted person.
Much like the man who was stabbed in the neck for a cigarette by a wanted person.
The Director appears to be putting the public at risk by failing to do his job.
It’s just a matter of time before someone is killed because the public isn’t notified.
