(THUNDER BAY, ON) – The recent rash of break-ins along the North Hill Street area has hopefully come to a close.
Yesterday Thunder Bay Police Service have made at least 1 arrest pertaining to the string of thefts and break-ins.
According to allegations, the suspects were originally kicked out of the Hillcrest Condos building, after people noticed the group in an area that is still under construction.
Shortly after, it was noticed that a lot of stuff was missing, and that they may have just been victims of a theft. They went outside and noticed one of the suspects walking down a near by street with a bunch of “belongings” on him.
It is suspected that the group was breaking into homes while people are at work.
That suspect was tackled by some REAL Concerned Citizens, and held down until police arrived.
Appearing in courtroom 104 by video this morning from the Thunder Bay Police Service Station for bail was Jason Mayer. He was charged with:
- Break and Enter
- Possession of stolen property
He has been released with a future court date.
