Police have a male in custody in connection with an investigation into a stolen motor vehicle.

Thunder Bay Police Service were dispatched to an area near John Street Road and Boulter Road just before 1: 30 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 26 following reports of a motor vehicle being stolen from the scene of a collision.

An investigation identified a suspect – a 24-year-old Thunder Bay man who was also the accused in an unrelated disturbance earlier that evening.

Continued investigation led police to a residential address in the 700 block of McLeod Street.

A police presence remained in the area as police sought a warrant allowing them to lawfully enter the dwelling. At about 2 p.m. officers located and arrested the accused.

He is expected to appear in bail court on Friday, Nov. 27 and is likely to face charges relating to Theft of a Motor Vehicle, Dangerous Driving, Flight from Police, and Breach of a Judicial Release Order.

Further information will be made public following Friday’s bail appearance. The identity of the accused is being withheld pending his court appearance.
