Thunder Bay Police Get Slightly Quieter Saturday

THUNDER BAY – Crime Report – Thunder Bay Police and Superior EMS had a slightly quieter Saturday night. Police in the downtown Thunder Bay core were out in a marked increased presence on Saturday night, and that might have assisted in calming things down from Friday night.

There were however still thirty-two liquor related offenses. At 11:05PM two units of the Thunder Bay Police responded to a disturbance at the corner of Victoria Avenue and Brodie Street in the downtown Fort William Business District.

Thunder Bay Police have also called in the Ontario Special Investigations Unit after a man died in police custody at the Balmoral Police headquarters.

Thunder Bay Police are also continuing their investigation into the Field Street Homicide. Informed sources have relayed to NNL that police are still seeking suspects in the homicide.

The area remains one where people go. At 2:32PM EDT on Sunday August 3rd, as this report is being written, Police, EMS and Pumper One of Thunder Bay Fire Rescue are responding to a call for an male who is in distress, and is unconscious, at the Field Street location.

The man has since been reported as simply intoxicated.

The attraction isn’t over the trees, the issue is addictions. Removing the trees will simply move the individuals to another location.

The area was the scene last year of a clean up by Police. However that one-time photo-opportunity obviously was not enough.

Police Chief JP Lesveque has suggested clearing the trees, but the area still seems to attract people during daylight hours.
