Police arrested eight people, including six from the GTA, after executing a warrant at a north-side apartment Friday.

Officers with the Thunder Bay Police Service’s Intelligence and Emergency Task Units, along with members of the OPP, arrived in the 200 block of Lincoln Street just before 1 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 15.

The search was the result of an ongoing investigation into drug trafficking activity.

As a result of their search police located and seized a quantity of suspected Fentanyl and crack cocaine. About $5,000 in Canadian currency and paraphernalia consistent with drug trafficking was also seized.

All 8 people appeared in court this morning via video link from the TBPS station located at 1200 Balmoral Street. Justice of the Peace Marcel Donio was presiding along with Federal Crown Attorney Alec Hardiejowski, Provincial Crown Attorney Derrick “The Hammer” Silvestro, duty counsel lawyers and a law student working with duty counsel.

  • Fraud under $50000 x4.
  • Possession of a stolen credit card.

During court, Rye asked “Can I ask a question” Justice of the Peace Marcel Donio refused and told him to ask his lawyer and not to ask in open court.

Further, during court, Lymfa appeared to be in shock that he was arrested. He claimed that he was “just driving a friend” and it appeared he came here from southern Ontario to give someone a ride home. He something like “Why are they charging me for something I didn’t do” and further pressed that other people were arrested and let go. He urges that he had no drugs. He said “This is crazy”. We will update this with more quotes from court later today.

The Crown opposed the release of all involved except McKay and cited all three grounds as concerns. McKay had the secondary and primary grounds cited as reasons for detention. Let’s learn what the three grounds means below.

Primary grounds means the Crown believes the likelihood of the accused to return for court is low. Secondary ground concerns means the Crown believes there is a substantial risk that the accused will either re-offend, become a public safety concern or both, should they be released. Tertiary grounds means that the Crown believes that should the accused be released, the public may lose confidence in the administration of justice.

All of the people arrested were ordered to remain in jail until at least Wednesday, November 20th, 2019, where they will have another chance at being released. They are being transported to the overcrowded and understaffed Thunder Bay District Jail where they will likely remain until they are inevitably released.

Numerous other people were in the trap house at the time and were released by police.

  1. Funny how these snakes are caught with tens of thousands of dollars in drug money but can’t quite scrape up enough money for bail? $2000.00 down and $1500.00 I.O.U.? WTF Is that? These lice shouldn’t be getting bail in the first place, let along no money up front or partial bail payments.

    It’s no secret why Dumpster Bay is crawling with criminals. Where else can you go to carry out criminal activity of all kinds and face little to no consequences when caught? Our justice system under this gutless Liberal Federal govt seems to have been crafted by the criminals?

    Law abiding citizens must run the gauntlet out on our streets because incompetent, irresponsible JPs and judges release criminals of all kinds disregarding the safety of the general public. This bullshit has to change! If it doesn’t, it’s only a matter of time before vigilantism and anarchy take over.

  2. Hard to believe our once clean city is now overrun by career criminals who have no respect for the law or anyone else as a matter of fact. They are killing people left right and centre with their illeagal bad drugs who are overdosing and dying, they are shooting people for drug owed money or they are abducting young girls and women whom they have gotten into the drug scene by selling them drugs ( rather not selling them they are fronting them the drugs) and when their bill is so high that they cannot repay what they owe they are forcing them into trafficking them out onto the streets to pay off their debt that they owe. Then if lucky they get released but sometimes are found murdered instead of getting to go home where they belong. What has happened to our justice system maybe time to get some new judges to oversee that justice is served keep them locked up this is a joke, having IOU’S to pay off the balance of their bill because they cannot get enough money up front to pay their bail. Then having to live with a surety and half the time do not follow the rules anyway and unless they are seen by a cop that knows them and that they are breaking their curfew run free to do their business as before. They think they are above the law well not so. Why not show them who is the boss in their situation.

    1. Ontario has such corrupt everything to do with justice its disgusting. They let the murderers and thieves go n charge ppl that r actually innocent n got proof of their innocence with assaults n more. Yes.. the liberal government is a joke.. but.. canada keeps electing the liberals so let’s thank our neighbors and society who elect them back in each election year. Fricken twatwaffles get your head outta your asses b4 u complain..
