THUNDER BAY – CRIME REPORT – Developing – Thunder Bay Police are on scene on May Street and Violet Avenue this evening. A Police Unit has been on site for most of the afternoon, officers are upstairs in one of the apartment units. Earlier today, Superior EMS and a Thunder Bay Fire Rescue unit were on location at the address. Witnesses report that EMS removed a person from the scene.

Overall, so far it has been a business as usual holiday break for Thunder Bay Police.

Thunder Bay Police have dealt with twenty-three Quality of Life calls the vast majority of were alcohol related. At 01:35AM police were called to a robbery in the 100 block of May Street. At 03:52AM police were on scene in the 800 block of May Street North dealing with a drug related incident.

There was one sexual assault, and two assaults responded to by Thunder Bay Police.

As well, over the past several nights, Thunder Bay Police have maintained their vigilance on the roads for impaired drivers.

This year, keeping in mind the speed of social media, and the apparent willingness of some people to use social media to alert drivers to locations of police, the effort this year is far more stealth-like. Coming up on the Festive Ride stop, police are parking their units out of sight.

They are also not on the usual major roadways. This is allowing police to catch potential impaired drivers unaware.

For Thunder Bay drivers, keep in mind that if you are tweeting or Facebooking the locations of police trying to catch impaired drivers, you are actually enabling people to drink and drive. That makes our streets far less safe.
