The TBPS report, “At approximately 4:06 am, 28 June 2011, Thunder Bay Police responded to three suspicious males seen running from a residential yard in the 2000 block of Rosslyn Road. Upon officers arrival in the vicinity the males fled on foot into the bush area pursued by officers. Two of the males were taken into custody after the foot pursuit and the third male was apprehended by police canine which was called out to assist in the search for the third male.
