(THUNDER BAY, ON) – In the early morning hours of Sunday, December 1st, 2019, officers with the Thunder Bay Police Service responded to a call surrounding reports of a violent home invasion that happened at the Thunder Bay housing complex located at 707 John Street.
Officers arrived on location and immediately conducted their investigation. As a result of that investigation, 33-year-old Christopher James Thompson, of Armstrong, Ontario was arrested and charged.
Thompson appeared in a Thunder Bay courtroom this morning via video link while in police custody at the Balmoral police station. Working the courtroom this morning was Justice of the Peace Bruce Leaman, Crown Attorney P. Pasloski and duty counsel representative Joy Wakefield.
Thompson is facing two new charges of:
- Break and enter and did commit assault (707 John).
- Breaching a probation order made on June 18th, 2019 (keep the peace and be of good behaviour).
Not being a stranger to the criminal justice system, Thompson was charged on June 30th for breaching the probation order made on June 18th. That charge is still working it’s way through court.
Thompson was not released from jail today and was scheduled to reappear in court on Tuesday, December 3rd, 2019 for another chance at getting released. He will be transported to the overcrowded and understaffed Thunder Bay District Jail where he will likely remain until at least Tuesday.
