Accused in 2018 armed robbery incident denied bail

Logan Lunn, now 24, is charged with a string of offences from 2018 that are still before the courts. Since then, he has accumulated more charges including one count of forcible confinement and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle from last month.
Thunder Bay Courthouse (Matt Vis,

THUNDER BAY – A Thunder Bay man facing multiple charges from 2018 including robbery using a firearm and disguising his face with an intent to commit an offence has been denied bail by an Ontario Court Justice of the Peace.

Logan Lunn, 24, appeared in a Thunder Bay courtroom on Wednesday for a bail hearing. Lunn sat in silence for the majority of his hearing as Crown and Defence counsel made their submissions on his release.

But when Justice of the Peace Bruce Leaman read his reasons for detention, Lunn became vocal and refused to let Leaman finish speaking by interrupting him from the prisoner's box.

Lunn was eventually ordered out of the courtroom and was escorted out by four police officers. 

Leaman finished reading his decisions without Lunn present in the courtroom. Judges can deny bail for several reasons including if an accused person is likely to re-offend or if there is a chance an accused is a flight risk.

The accused was charged in September 2018 in connection with an armed robbery incident at a Lakeshore Drive residence, according to a previous Ontario Provincial Police media release.

All evidence presented at his bail hearing on Wednesday is protected by a court-ordered publication ban as well as Leaman’s reasons for detaining Lunn.

Some of his charges from the dated incident include one count of robbery using a firearm, disguising face with intent, failing to stop without reasonable excuse, pointing a firearm, and assault with a weapon.

His most recent charges stem from two separate incidents in February and include one count of forcible confinement, dangerous operation of a conveyance, assault, assault with a weapon and threatening death and bodily harm.

His criminal record includes one conviction for theft under $5,000 and three breaches of failing to comply with court orders, all of which he pleaded guilty to in December 2019.

He is scheduled to appear in court next month by video to be spoken to.
