(THUNDER BAY, ON) – It’s Friday evening and it has been over 24 hours since a woman has had seen or been in contact with the person that has her truck. The suspect was supposed to return the truck to her shortly after dropping her off Thursday evening at 7:00 pm. He was expected to return by 7:30 pm and has not been heard from.
We have been told that the truck was last seen in the Grenville Ave area on Thursday evening.
The woman has since called the Thunder Bay Police Service and reported the truck stolen. She has had this arrangement with this man before, without any hiccups, but this time it did not go according to the agreement. Sources have indicated that the male likely has a warrant out for his arrest for a previous incident and may be using the truck to flee Thunder Bay.
Further, sources have indicated that drug addiction may be an issue for the man that was last with the truck. Local known trap houses have been checked for the truck but without success. Note: A trap house is an area or house usually and frequently occupied by drug dealers/ drug users. In most cases, these houses can be found in Thunder Bay Housing dense areas such as Picton ave, 288 Windsor, Academy, Limbrick, etc.
The truck is a black 2011 Ford F150 FX4 and has sentimental value to the woman. It was her boyfriends truck before he passed away last year. She really wants her truck back in one piece, her stomach is sick with stress over this situation. Marcel, if you are reading this, please ditch the truck out front of her house. There will now be a thousand pairs of eyes looking hard at all black Ford F150’s.
UPDATE: The owner has located the truck and called police. After waiting around over 2 hours for police to arrive, they decided to leave as it was located on Academy Drive. The neighbourhood is not the safest area to linger in. The vehicle didn’t appear to be damaged and nothing at first glance was missing. The keys the suspect had are still missing.
48-year-old Marcel Perth was last seen with the truck after dropping off the owner at their home. If anyone has has any information regarding the location of Perth or the missing truck, they are urged to contact the Thunder Bay Police Service at 807-684-1200.
