(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Yet another morning that Northwood residents wake up to having to tidy up their vehicles before heading out.
Residents have two viable options, lock their doors and hope the windows don’t get smashed or keep the doors unlocked and allow the criminals to double check that you didn’t leave anything of value in your vehicle.
I forgot to mention, but both options clearly start off with you, the owner of the vehicle, removing everything of value before choosing what to do with your doors.
Around 5:40 am this morning, this guy along with a few other crooks were lurking the Northwood area, attempting to find something of value that can undoubtedly be traded for drug money.
Judges in the Thunder Bay Courthouse have on numerous occasions stated that the majority of crimes in Thunder Bay, especially “crimes of opportunity” such as this one, are driven by “drug-seeking” behaviour which is spawned out of an out of control drug addition.
