(THUNDER BAY, ON) – A heist that got busted up by the police has landed one local woman behind bars and charged criminally. The woman, who is well known in town and has many friends, is now working her way through the criminal justice system.
Kristin Kathleen Foster appeared in a Thunder Bay bail court this morning via video from the Thunder Bay Police Service station. Justice of the Peace Jennifer Neill was presiding along with Crown Attorney Delaney and duty counsel lawyer Morris.
Foster is alleged to have broken into the Toy Sense, located at 447 May Street and stole a “racing car set”/ Police made the arrest and recovered the stolen property. Foster is facing the following criminal charges:
- Break and Enter to commit theft.
- Possession of stolen property under $5000.
Justice of the Peace Neill tells the court that Foster also had a Superior Court warrant issue regarding a small claims matter. Her Worship tells the court that she has no jurisdiction to grant Foster release at this time due to the issue.
The Crown states that although Foster is being held on the Superior Court warrant, she is still releasable on these new charges.
Her Worship remands Foster into custody until Monday July 15th, in a Thunder Bay courtroom where she can begin the process of answering to these allegations and seeking bail. She will spend time in jail until at least Monday.
