Police Seek Help to ID Break and Enter Suspects

THUNDER BAY – NEWS – The Thunder Bay Police Service is requesting public assistance in identifying two suspects connected to a recent break and enter to a business.

Officers with the Uniform Patrol Branch were originally dispatched to a break and enter that had just occurred at the Nook restaurant at 271 Bay Street just after 6 am on Saturday, December 28, 2019. This was the second break and enter to that business that morning; the first occurring around 2 am.

During the second break-in, two suspects entered the business. One suspect attempted to gain access to the cash register, while the second suspect attempted to steal merchandise from the business.

Both entered the business through the forced entry of a side window. Both exited from the same location.

The first suspect is believed to be a male, possibly in his 30s, with a skinny build. He wore red gloves, black shoes with white on the bottom, grey pants, and a green sweater-hoodie at the time of the incident.

The second suspect is believed to be a male in his 30s with a medium build. He wore a black jacket with fur on the hood and tan work boots at the time of the incident. The left sleeve of the jacket appeared to be cut open with white liner coming out of it.

The suspect involved in the earlier break and enter to the Nook is described as being tall and thin with dark, chin-length hair. Other descriptors, including the suspected gender, are not available at this time.

As a result of an ongoing investigation by members of the Thunder Bay Police Service’s Break and Enter and Armed Robbery (BEAR) Unit, footage showing the suspects involved is now being released to the public.
