THUNDER BAY - A man who allegedly hid from police and was then found with a Taser was granted bail on Tuesday.

Jody Dulian was arrested by Thunder Bay police on Sept. 16 after officers attended a residential address on Finlayson Street after receiving reports of a male entering a house with a gun, according to a past police media release. Police say they located multiple individuals inside the house including a man who was attempting to hide from police and was allegedly found with a conductive energy weapon, commonly referred to as a Taser.

Dulian is charged with possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, possession of a firearm contrary to a prohibition and obstructing a police officer.

On Tuesday, Sept. 29, Dulian appeared before Justice of the Peace Bruce Leaman by video for his bail hearing where he was granted release from custody on a bail amount of $1,000 with no deposit to his surety.

His bail conditions require him to live with his surety, stay away from alcohol and drugs and he cannot possess any weapons. He must also be inside of his residence daily from 8 p.m. to 7 a.m. unless he is working or with his surety.

Dulian is scheduled to return to court in late October.
