(THUNDER BAY, ON) – The Nipigon and Lake Helen First Nation areas were hit overnight and early this morning by a crime spree.
The criminals responsible were not only car-hopping, but breaking into homes and stealing various items.
Video obtained by TRCC News shows a possible female purchasing items from a Nipigon area store with a stolen financial card.
Sources at Wal-Mart on Dawson Road tell us that the same suspect ransacked the store and fled the scene through an emergency exit. They had stolen items under their arms. This unfolded around 1:00 pm.
These criminals are not believed to be from our region. It is possible they are partaking in a new fad called “crimecation”, where criminals go on vacation to new areas and commit crimes.
This is a developing story and we will keep you updated.
