(THUNDER BAY, ON) – The Thunder Bay Police Service have scrambled officer’s to the area of Algoma and Pearl after a call for service came in.
A little, innocent elderly lady had used an ATM at the Copperfin Credit Union on Algoma and upon leaving the lobby, was robbed of her money.
The suspect was followed by some REAL Concerned Citizens that were in the area and it is believed he fled to a well known crack trap house near the corner of Pearl and Secord.
Police have a strong presence and are on foot securing the area.
A “Trap House” is a residence in where drug dealers are selling their drugs out of. Not to be confused with a “flop house” where drug users pile in to use drugs, but also not to be confused with a “shooting gallery” which is a residence where people mainly “shoot” needles in their arms all day. It is not uncommon for all three types of “houses” to be amalgamated into one.
The suspect is described as:
- Aged in the mid 20’s.
- Salmon coloured shirt.
- Blue sweater.
The suspect fled with $200 and police are investigating.
UPDATE: Police have cleared the scene, no suspect was seen being taken into custody.
