(THUNDER BAY, ON) – ALLEGED THIEF ORDERED TO STAY AWAY FROM EVERY LCBO STORE IN ONTARIO AFTER PASSING OUT AT STARBUCKS.
A 40 year old BERNIE JOHNATHAN MOONIAS aka WABASSE appeared via video from Thunder Bay Police Station this morning, Sunday March 10,2019.
It’s W.A.S.H. (Weekend And Statutory Holiday) Court today. Her Worship, Justice of the Peace Denette Maslach is presiding. Provincial Crown Tiffany Boisvert is here along with Duty Counsel Lianne Roberge.
MOONIAS appears very unsteady on feet wearing a black “TUPAC” T-shirt.
Yesterday at 2:57pm, Loss Prevention Officers spotted MOONIAS leaving LCBO on Fort William Road without attempting to pay for a bottle of fine Kelly’s wine.
MOONIAS left the store.
Thunder Bay Police were called and arrived at the store. But they found other people stealing, so they were busy arresting and charging them.
Meanwhile, MOONIAS made it as far as Starbucks where he passed out unconscious in the coffee shop having allegedly consumed the entire bottle in under an hour.
Starbucks staff called TBPS who arrived to find the unconscious and intoxicated MOONIAS in the store.
Crown Attorney Boisvert wants the condition that MOONIAS not be allowed at any LCBO in Ontario. Duty Counsel Roberge feels that he should be allowed back in any LCBO except Fort William Road location.
The problem is that MOONIAS is alleged to steal from every LCBO.
Court hears there are more charges coming against MOONIAS. He’s released with conditions to stay 20 metres away from every LCBO store in Ontario.
He’s not to be outside “intoxicated”. Not allowed in bars or booze cans. Must report every Monday to Thunder Bay Police.
He’s released with a future court date.
Another good job by TBPS Officers.
