UPDATE: Waterloo Circle K Gunpoint Robbery


(THUNDER BAY, ON) – The Thunder Bay Police Service is investigating an armed robbery involving a firearm that took place Sunday evening.

Officers with the Uniform Patrol Branch were dispatched to the Circle K convenience store at 640 Waterloo Street South just before 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 1 following reports of a robbery that had just occurred.


Police learned a male armed with a long gun entered the store with his face covered. The accused pointed the firearm at the store clerk and demanded money.

The accused then fled the store on foot, heading west through the Alma Adair Park across the street from the store.

Through an ongoing investigation police obtained video surveillance footage showing the accused during the robbery. Images from that footage are now being made available to the public in hopes the suspect can be positively identified.


Investigators believe this incident is connected to another armed robbery that took place on Saturday.

Thanks to the combined efforts of members of dispatch, the Emergency Task Unit, K9 Unit, Community Response Team, and first-responding Uniform Patrol Branch officers, police located a discarded rifle believed to have been used in the robbery.

  1. Looks like the same rifle used in a previously reported robbery.

    Ditching the weapon may have been a big mistake if it’s registered and has a serial number to trace. I suspect this asshole will be apprehended in due course.

    1. More than likely Angel.

      You sound familiar with the process of “poor parenting”. Have some” problems” of your own do you?

  2. At least our mayor is on the right track, prioritizing an indoor turf facility, so all his pals kids can play soccer year round. No point spending money on something real dumb like law enforcement. Maybe he needs to be spit on a few times, to see what others have to put up with. Can you believe that as recent as 15 years ago, Thunder Bay was a decent place to live. What went wrong? Who’s got the nerve to say it out loud?

    1. What went wrong?

      Uncontrolled influx of undesirables flocking to the city for readily available and inexhaustible welfare. The City/province have rolled out the red carpet for every lowlife looking to be career welfare scammers. The word has spread that Dumpster Bay is the easiest town in the country to get on and stay on the dole.

      Uncontrolled influx of southern Ontario drug dealing gangs coming to the city to cash in on the above mentioned welfare scammers. Welfare money provides most of the drug dealers income and it never dries up. It’s a goldmine for them.

      So, to sum it up, our free flowing welfare is what caused the entire problem. Crack down on welfare and watch the situation improve.

  3. Crack heads shoot those drugs deep into your veins because thats what you crave. when you O D and die than well to fucking bad you choose the life of drugs now you live with that choice of dying.
