(THUNDER BAY, ON) – A warrant for the arrest of 37-year-old Adam Myslicki was not only issued in Thunder Bay regarding stolen property, but also two more in Alberta for various alleged crimes there as well as in Manitoba.
Officers with the Thunder Bay Police Service (TBPS) managed to locate Myslicki, arrested, charged, and held him in their custody pending a court appearance which went down at the Thunder Bay Courthouse this morning.
Myslicki appeared in court via video link from the TBPS station on Balmoral Street. Justice of the Peace Zelda Kitchekeesic was presiding along with Crown Attorney Derrick “The HAMMER” Silvestro and the always sharp criminal defence lawyer Emily Morris acting as duty counsel. Mylicki has a local criminal defence lawyer Scarfe here to represent him. Myslicki was there facing a charge of possession of stolen property and a breach of his bail conditions which link back to his legal troubles back in Alberta.
The Crown tells the court that Myslicki is in a reverse-onus situation and that he intends to hold Myslicki to that onus. This means that Myslicki will have to show the courts why he should be released from jail.
Scarfe tells the courts that she has put in a referral to the John Howard Bail Supervision Program for them to consider assisting Myslicki get out of the clink. But The HAMMER has other plans! He points out how John Howard ain’t stepping up for anyone that has outstanding warrants in other jurisdictions, as their policy.
Scarfe requests the matter return to court on Tuesday, December 17th, 2019 for the matter to be heard then. Myslicki is headed off to the Thunder Bay District Jail, where he is likely to remain until at least his Tuesday court date.
