Thief caught, but not charged

Things didn’t go so well for the culprit who was caught breaking into a man’s home on the afternoon of March 7.

His situation appeared to get worse when the man took him to the RCMP detachment. But then, the home owner said he wanted to give the man a break and did not want charges filed.

The suspect was set free.
