(DUNC LAKE, ON) – Ontario Provincial Police in Marathon had a very wild man to tame on November 16th, as police apprehended a resident of southern Ontario.

48-year-old Adrian Zagloba was arrested after allegedly breaking into a nearby resort, busting open some cupboard doors, and looting $175.


It is also alleged that he kicked a dog, causing harm, stole a white 2006 GMC Truck, from a contractor, drove that truck drunk around the resort and roadway, and over the septic field, which caused damage.

Further allegations are that once he was confronted by police, he attempted to pass off someone else’s ID as his own, in an attempt to persuade them he had his driver’s license and no criminal record. When that failed and he was put in the back of an OPP vehicle, he booted out the back window.

Zagloba is facing the following criminal charges:

  • Obstruct police
  • Break and enter with intent to commit an indictable offence (theft $175)
  • Mischief causing damage under $5000 (cupboard doors, main door to resort, lights)
  • Willfully causing unnecessary harm to an animal by kicking a dog
  • Theft of a motor vehicle 2006 GMC pickup truck
  • Impaired while in care or control of a motor vehicle
  • Operating a motor vehicle while disqualified
  • Assault
  • Mischief causing damage under $5000 (driving over the septic field)
  • Fraudulent use of ID
  • Mischief causing damage under $5000 (kicking out the read police vehicle window)

The Crown begins by stating this is a Crown onus situation, but he does have primary and secondary ground concerns regarding the possible release of Zagloba. Primary ground concerns basically mean that the Crown doesn’t find it likely that the accused will show up to court. Secondary ground concerns mean that the Crown believes the accused is likely to re-offend, become a public safety concern, or interfere with the administration of justice.

Zagloba is from Mississauga and is unable to explain why he was even in northern Ontario, according to the police report. He also has an extensive criminal record involving driving while impaired and while disqualified, the Crown explains.

A request for a no-contact order regarding 2 people is put forth by the Crown while stating that he intends to show cause as to why Zagloba should be detained.

Duty counsel requests the matter be remanded until Monday, so that Zagloba may obtain a lawyer and craft a possible bail plan.

Zagloba is ordered by Justice of the Peace Maslach to remain in jail until at least Monday when he will have another crack at getting released.

Zagloba will be transported from Marathon to the Thunder Bay District Jail, where he will await his appearance by video on Monday.
