Trail of Blood Leads Police to Suspect in Break in

TBPS Unit 260

THUNDER BAY – Police arrested a break-and-enter suspect Thursday after following a trail of blood drops that led them directly to the closet he was hiding in.

Thunder Bay Police Service officers with the Uniform Patrol Branch were dispatched to a residential address in the 700 block of John Street just before 3 am on Thursday, August 27, 2020, following reports of a break and enter in progress.

When officers arrived they observed signs of forced entry into an apartment unit, and droplets of blood believed to have been left by the accused.

Police followed the droplets, which led them to a closet where they located the male suspect.

A 28-year-old Thunder Bay man was arrested without further incident. He is charged with Breaking and Entering With Intent, and Breach of Probation.

He is expected to appear in bail court today.
