(THUNDER BAY, ON) – The “Wanted Wednesday” program started out a few years ago to much public approval. The program initially featured 4 new fugitives weekly and kept them up for quite a while.
The program was intended to encourage people to turn themselves in and deal with their outstanding warrants. During the first while the program was running, police say it was so successful that they reduced the number of people released weekly to one. For months before this change happened, police would often have two or three people added weekly instead of 4, due to issues finding people that fit the criteria for the program.
In a nutshell, the program is meant for people that have been arrested and charged, then released and are aware they have charges. At this point they would have a court date and tend to have skipped it or possibly racked up new charges. I have been told the program is not intended for people who have outstanding warrants but have not been initially arrested.
We post and share with the public all the people that are still wanted on the program every week, so you may see the same people week after week. This is how we keep you up-to-date.
Below is this week’s Wanted Wednesday. Enjoy the show.
The following people are currently WANTED on outstanding bench and/or committal warrants by the Thunder Bay Police Service.
*** DO NOT approach or confront any of the people identified ***
Members of the general public have NO AUTHORITY to detain these individuals.
If you know the whereabouts of any of these people, please contact the Thunder Bay Police Service at 807-684-1200 or 911.

(THUNDER BAY, ON) – We reported last night that there was a drug bust in progress at a West Frederica Street address. The Ontario Provincial Police Service, Thunder Bay Police Service, and Nishnawbe Aski Police Service teamed up for this one.
The bust happened just a day after Ryan Deluney was busted in the area, with his truck parked nearly behind Barrie’s residence but was also being investigated on Fort William First Nation as well.
28-year-old Sean Lawrence Barrie appeared in a Thunder Bay courtroom this morning by video from the Thunder Bay Police Service Station.
Her Worship, Zelda Kitchekeesic was presiding along with Federal Crown Attorney Ron Poirier, Provincial Crown Attorney P. Paslowski, and defence lawyer David Bruzzese.
Barrie is charged with the following:
- Possession for the purpose of trafficking x8
- Unauthorized possession of a firearm x2
- Careless use of a firearm
- Possessing a firearm while knowing it is unauthorized
- Possessing a firearm with ammunition
- Possession of proceeds of crime over $5000
Barrie was found with a loaded handgun and a large amount of fentanyl (about 200 grams) and cocaine.
Defence lawyer Bruzzese asks for the matter to return to court on Monday November 19th so that they can set a date for the special bail hearing.
Barrie is escorted back to his cell where he will wait to be transported to the Thunder Bay District Jail.
Sources indicate that Barrie is well connected to multiple gangs.
Two others were busted in the same building during the same raid.
40-year-old Summer Boucher and 50-year-old Michael Fredric Woods were both charged with:

Both accused were remanded into custody for a Monday court date. The Crown indicated that both situations were a reverse onus, and that the Crown intends to put them to their onus.
Drugs involved in this bust were fentanyl, cocaine, morphine and oxycodone.
