A 25 year old TRAVIS TESSIER appeared by video from the Thunder Bay Jail today, Monday July 5,2021 in Plea Courtroom 102 before His Honor, Justice Peter Bishop to plead guilty to several charges.


TESSIER attended the Shoppers Drug Mart at 701 Red River Road at 11:44am and was stealing several items and putting them in his pants. Staff at the store noticed the large bulge of items in his pants and questioned him. TESSIER fled the store and hid the items out back behind a bush. TBPS Officers arrested TESSIER on June 1,2021 and found $457.30 of stolen items.

TESSIER was on 3 different probation orders at the time. He was released the next day by the court.

TESSIER attended the Circle K on Simpson Street on June 3,2021 at 7:45am and staff noticed that he was using an ID that was not his. TBPS Officers arrived and located TESSIER nearby with a stolen wallet and ID. TESSIER then told police that he was “Terry” which was the name on the stolen ID. He was arrested and held in custody.

TESSIER has a criminal record of over 4 pages that starts in 2013. He has several break and enters, along with an armed robbery which he received a 15 month sentence in 2015. Half of his criminal record is in the last 2 years. He was just convicted in April 2021 of trespass by night, unlawful in a dwelling house and break & enter. He has numerous breaches of court orders and violence. One of his most notable crimes was breaking into a TBPS Officer’s home.

TESSIER has a daughter and is a college drop out. He started taking morphine when he was about 16 years old and working at A&W. He suffered emotional abuse as a child from his stepfather. His mother thinks he will overdose. TESSIER tells the court that the mother of his child is arranging an apartment for him when he gets released from custody.

TESSIER has been in custody for 31 days that will be enhanced to 47 days. He’s getting another probation order of 12 months. He still has outstanding criminal charges and his lawyer David Pearce will try get him out on bail on July 12,2021.

Justice Bishop orders restitution of $457.30 to Shoppers Drug Mart but concedes that it will most likely not be paid unless TESSIER wins the lottery.

As per usual practice, the Director of Communications at TBPS and his local taxpayer subsidized media buddies aren’t telling the public again.

TESSIER will appear in Courtroom 102 on Friday March 8,2019.

TESSIER is acquiring a lengthy criminal record.


On April 18,2017 Thunder Bay Police charged TRAVIS TESSIER with several offences after an off duty police officer at a north side residence was surprised to find TESSIER inside his home early in the morning.

The homeowner/police officer had just returned from dropping his child off at school. He surprised TESSIER inside of the home and restrained him before on duty police were called.

Thunder Bay Police arrived at the home on the 200 block of Shuniah Street for a report of a break and enter at approximately 9 a.m.

Kudos to the Thunder Bay Police for their strong response.

Travis Tessier faced charges of breaking and entering, resisting arrest, and possession of property obtained by crime.

Tessier had property from other homes that were broken into. He was sentenced on August 18,2017.
