Hardworking Thunder Bay Police Officers & Paramedics responded to an apartment at 214 Kensington Drive on Sunday May 2,2021. They arrived to find a woman with no vital signs and 3 children under the age of 7 years old all crying.

The woman (lease tenant) had overdosed and hardworking paramedics were keeping her alive. The woman’s hands were covered in blood. Officers helped calm the children and did a quick look around.

Despite having a woman with no vital signs upstairs and 3 children

They found a 26 year old ARTHUR JOSEPH MCKENNA JR. of Toronto in the basement of the unit. Officers noticed a digital scale covered in residue and a switch blade knife.

This Toronto drug dealer is alleged to have had in his possession:

  • -32 grams of crack cocaine
  • -22 grams of cocaine
  • -43 grams of fentanyl
  • -$10 000 cash

TBPS Officers noted that MCKENNA’S red cell phone never stopped ringing with incoming calls during their investigation.

ARTHUR JOSEPH MCKENNA JR is facing several criminal charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking, proceeds of crime and the prohibited weapon charge.

MCKENNA JR was remanded into custody at the Thunder Bay Jail and appeared by video for a bail hearing before Her Worship, Justice of the Peace Lynn Tivey yesterday, Wednesday May 12, 2021.

His father, ARTHUR JOSEPH MCKENNA SR & 26 year old friend Duane Anthony Michael Rehberg both from the 1200 block of Lakeshore Road East in Mississauga were the proposed sureties.

MCKENNA JR has a degree in Culinary Arts from George Brown College and normally works at a bar & grill in Port Credit. His older sister died from drugs.

He was released on a $6000 no deposit bail to both sureties, but must live in his father’s home.

  • -not allowed in Thunder Bay except for court purposes
  • -curfew 11pm to 6am
  • -no weapons
  • -must leave Thunder Bay within 48 hours.

Another great job by hardworking TBPS Officers & Paramedics.

Another massive failure by the Director Of Communications at TBPS to inform the public. Paying the former ad salesman from TBLAZYWATCH over 140 000 taxpayer dollars annually has been a complete failure for years.

Police Chief Sylvie Hauth and the Police Services Board do nothing to correct this.
