(THUNDER BAY, ON) – A man facing a couple of charges, one that dates back to December 18th, was arrested by police and appeared in bail court this morning via video from the Thunder Bay Police Service Station.
47-year-old Leonard Dick was in front of Justice of the Peace Marcel Donio, along with Crown Attorney Franceline Auclair and duty counsel lawyer Lianne Roberge
Upon appearing on the video, Dick asks the Justice of the Peace if it’s ok if he sits down during his appearance, as it was made apparent the man needs a walker to move around. His Worship Donio grants this request.

- Unlawfully in a dwelling house with intent to commit an indictable offence
Dick also has a charge stemming from a December 18th incident, that charge is:
In August of 2018, a caretaker of a home on Bruce Street contacted police due to an apparent break and enter that had happened at a home. The house was in disarray.
Police took DNA samples in the home and the results of that investigation were that Leonard Dick’s DNA was located in the home.
The Crown states that she is prepared to release Dick, as long as he has an address to be released to. Dick tells the court that he lives in the 100 block of Jean Street, in an apartment building. Dick tells the court that he used to live on Bethune street.
Armed with the information that Dick has an address, the Crown is willing to consent to his release on the following conditions:
- No contact with 1 person
- Do not attend the entirety of Bruce Street
The Justice of the Peace grants Dick the proposed release and orders him to return to court on December 11th, 2018 at duty counsels request.
