All of the suspects remain in custody and appeared via video at the Thunder Bay Courthouse Friday afternoon.

Chapais, 33 was remanded until Aug. 25 when he will again appear by video. Mishenene, 21, was remanded until Aug. 8 when he will appear in person and Wabason, 38, was remanded until Aug. 5 to appear via video.
