The former in-house lawyer of the Thunder Bay Police Service has been charged by the Ontario Provincial Police.

The individual resigned from the city police force last year after a half-decade of service.

In late 2021, the Ministry of the Attorney General requested that the OPP investigate allegations of misconduct by members of the Thunder Bay Police Service.

That review led to an investigation by the OPP Criminal Investigation Branch.

That investigation led to multiple charges including Obstructing a public or peace officer, Breach of trust by a public officer, and three Obstruction of Justice charges.

The accused has been released from custody with a future court date, and the criminal investigation remains ongoing.

This is the second member of the Thunder Bay Police Service to face charges in the past 6 months concerning the investigation requested by the Ministry of the Attorney General. The OPP declined to comment on whether these cases are connected, at this time.
