How can I find someone who is currently awaiting trial or in jail in Toronto?

My former tenant, who owes me a lot of money (i.e., back rent, cleaning fee, cost of repairs) has disappeared. He was arrested in early January of this year. As of late January he was out on bail and had to remain with his surety and so was no longer living in the basement apartment of my house, though his stuff was still all there and he had left it a disgusting filthy mess. He promised to pick up his stuff, clean up the worst of the mess, and start paying me some money every month until what he owed me was paid. But he did not do so, and I haven't heard from him since January 28. The only contact info I have for him is an email address, and I emailed him three times in February asking him to pick up his stuff but received no reply. I will be filing a small claims court case against him once the apartment repairs are all completed and I have the total of what it cost, but for the purposes of the lawsuit and of communicating with him, I would like to find out where he is, whether he's in jail, what the charges are, and how long he's likely to remain in jail. How can I find this out? I do have his social insurance number, if that helps.
