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.

While making the arrest, Officers discovered a concealed handgun on 35 year old DAVID ALLAN MARTELL. It was a replica pellet gun. MARTELL was wanted on a warrant since July 2,2020 for allegedly robbing an individual of cash while armed with a hatchet.

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.

MARTELL is facing new criminal charges of:

  • -mischief
  • -carry conceal weapon (hatchet)

MARTELL has outstanding child abuse charges with co-accused STACEY MANNING of:

  • -criminal negligence causing bodily harm to person under 16
  • -failing to provide the necessities of life to a person under 16

MARTELL HAS A HISTORY OF CRIME AND DRUGS. He committed an armed robber at a Mac’s Convenience Store in April 2018

MARTELL was busted in 2016 with $95 000 cash and cocaine.

Inside Edition sources indicate that MARTELL has been dealing drugs out of Thunder Bay Social Housing for the Southern Ontario gang members
