Thunder Bay police have arrested a man suspected of breaking into a credit union earlier this week.

Blair Joseph Pelletier, 31, is charged with break and enter and failure to comply with a recognizance.  Pelletier is accused of breaking into the Copperfin Credit Union on Arundel Street early Tuesday morning.

The suspect was arrested Thursday morning at the corner of Cumberland and Red River Road without incident.  A north side hotel and a vehicle were searched to secure evidence after the arrest.

Police say a surveillance video that had been released on social media assisted in identifying the suspect.

Pelletier is scheduled to appear in court Monday.
