THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO ~~~ July 12, 2020 (LSN) Hardworking Thunder Bay Police Officers caught up with a man wanted for armed robbery last night, Saturday July 11,2020.

Public No Warned!
It appears s part of the new role of the Police Department directed by City Council and the Police Service Board, they do not tell the public that this person was on the loose. There appears to be a movement away from the officers fighting crime.. To do this they need to prevent the citizens of Thunder Bay from becoming aware of most crimes
MARTELL spent the night in a jail cell at the Thunder Bay Police Station and appeared by audio in Bail Court today, Sunday July 12,2020 before Her Worship Zelda Kitchekeesic.
