Red River Subway Robbed

Thunder Bay Police are investigating a robbery at a Red River Road Subway restaurant. Police say a man entered the restaurant with a large knife and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash. An OPP tracking dog was brought in to help locate the suspect.

Stay Off The Tracks

Thunder Bay Police are reminding everyone of the dangers of being around railway tracks. This comes after three youths were seen trying to jump onto a moving train in Oliver-Paipoonge. According to police, none of the youths were injured in the incident, but were issued a warning. Police say anyone found near the tracks can be charged under the Railway Safety Act.

Police Monitor May Long

The long weekend is upon us, and police, as always, will be out in full force. Police will be on the lookout for impaired drivers, seat belt infractions, distracted driving and aggressive driving. Police are reminding drivers to plan ahead and take plenty of time to get to your destination safely. OPP will also be paying close attention to ATV drivers. The number of deaths linked to off-road vehicles has hit a four year high and has doubled in just two years.
