Pair Arrested After Theft Incident at Canadian Tire


(THUNDER BAY, ON) – In what appears to be a classic shoplifting tactic, a male was parked outside while another male entered Canadian Tire and was shoplifting. The male then exited the store and got in the getaway vehicle. They then drove off.

A short time later police arrested 35-year-old Troy Robert Glidden and 34-year-old Kyle Edwin John Pajamaki regarding the incident. Both men were transported to the Thunder Bay Police Service (TBPS) headquarters located at 1200 Balmoral Street where they remained pending their morning court date.


The two appeared in a Thunder Bay Courthouse courtroom on Monday, January 6th, 2020 via video link from the TBPS headquarters. His Worship, Justice of the Peace Bruce Leaman was presiding along with Crown Attorney Rob Kozak and criminal defence lawyer Brennen Sacevich who was filling in the role of duty counsel.

Glidden is facing the following charges:

  • Breaching a probation order made on August 9th, 2019 (keep the peace and be of good behaviour).
  • Breaching bail conditions not to attend a certain address.
  • Theft under $5000 (Canadian Tire).

Pajamaki is facing the following new charges:


  • Breaching bail condition not to operate or have care of control of a motor vehicle.
  • Breaching probation order made on July 10th, 2019 (keep the peace and be of good behaviour).

Pajamaki has an outstanding court matter which appears to have resulted in bail conditions restricting his driving privileges and alcohol consumption.

Glidden is denied his release from police custody today and is going to be transported to the Thunder Bay District Jail where he will likely remain until his scheduled court appearance on Thursday where he will have another swing at bail.

Pajamaki is granted release from police custody today under the following conditions:

  • Not to contact a certain woman if he has been consuming alcohol in the past 24 hours.
  • Not to contact Troy Glidden.
  • Not to possess any weapons as defined by the Criminal Code of Canada.

None of the charges have been proven in a court of law.

  1. Haaha!
    Just look at another pair of wannabe gangsta!
    Tryin to look as though they big time hoods!
    L O L
    Sticking out like the losers they are, from small town Canada-
    Why not move to the big time boys?!
    Let the REAL men teach you what fools little boys are!!

  2. Well, well, well,….. What do we have here?

    Seems like a white trash contribution to the crime scene in Dumpster Bay.

    A couple of lowlife losers doing their part to balance the 10-90-100 rule.

    1. Rex you crack me up LOL Your comments make my day. The best thing about these two dumb assholes is they probably do not know that they do not qualify for Gladue dumb and dumber ha ha , Hopefully the judge realizes that too.

    2. Sally:

      Don’t bet on it. If our chicken shit JPs and judges find that using Gladue will make “their” life easier, they’ll find a way use it for these two buffoons.

      Who knows? Maybe these loser punks went on a Kelly’s binge and after that they think they now qualify for Gladue? They don’t look particularly bright.

  3. Wow one of these guys was left devastated a few years ago when his fiancee died of an Unexpected OD and he took the helm, single parenting her sons and their baby daughter… he isnt a piece of crap person but actually an amazing person and I am shocked his life took this turn. I really hope he gets help. I knew him to be a very stand up guy who took care of another mans kids. Saddens me.

    1. Yeah right…

      “his fiancee died of an Unexpected OD” Do druggers have “expected” ODs?

      A couple hard core druggers flirting with death. Sound like they should be voted “parents of the year”. A real stand up guy for sure.

      Pity any children under the care of these lowlifes and/or anyone like them.

    2. She wasn’t a “drugger” or “lowlife” she was a really great person and mom. She had post partum depression. The guy was an excellent person too by all standards and I have no idea what happened to him but you lumping every person with a drug problem together by calling them scum or whatever your pet names are is just as bad and JUST as ignorant. Its easier to be a keyboard warrior tho than be educated tho.

    3. You’re right Jayjay.

      It’s everyone else’s fault. Never that of the druggers. Certainly it must have been her first shot at taking drugs and just happened to OD right? I call bullshit.

      Life is about decisions. Good ones and bad ones. Doesn’t seem that these two made very many good ones. No sympathy from me whatsoever.

    4. Well said and every word true….addiction causes soul infliction and the actions done while battling it doesnt represent the true nature of the person. Compare addiction to demonic possession. I know him extremely well and love the guy but everyone has demons
