THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO  ~~~~~  September 29, 2020  (LSN)   ANTHONY TALBERT HAS A LONG CRIMINAL HISTORY INCLUDING HUMAN TRAFFICKING A Toronto man under court-ordered conditions not to be in the City of Thunder Bay was located by police Sunday and found to be in possession of a handgun.

Thunder Bay Police Service officers were originally dispatched to an apartment in the 800 block of McLaughlin Street just before 1:15 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 27 following reports of a male possibly armed with a handgun.

When police arrived to the apartment they located a male suspect. The male identified himself to officers, but an investigation revealed he was providing police with a false identity.

Police confirmed the suspect’s true identity and learned he was under court-ordered conditions not to be in Thunder Bay and not to possess weapons. Those conditions stem from previous firearm-related charges in 2019.

Further investigation also led officers to locate and seize a modified handgun.

The accused was arrested and transported to TBPS headquarters without further incident.

Anthony Omar TALBERT, 27, of Toronto, is charged with:

  • • Unauthorized Possession of a Firearm
  • • Unauthorized Possession of a Prohibited or Restricted Weapon
  • • Possession of a Firearm with Knowledge its Possession is Unauthorized
  • • Tamper with Serial Number of a Firearm
  • • Possession of a Firearm Knowing Serial Number Has Been Tampered
  • • Obstruct Peace Officer
  • • Failure to Comply with a Judicial Release

He appeared in bail court on Sunday, Sept. 27, and was remanded into custody with a future appearance date.
