Resident chases thief

Police are looking for a teenager who tried to break into a home early Friday morning.

According to RCMP, the owner heard a noise around 12:35 a.m. and discovered the young man trying to pry the screen off a bedroom window. The suspect then fled from the residence located in the 100 block of Thulin St.  The suspect is described as about 16 years old, medium height, slim build and was wearing a black hoodie.

In a similar incident in the early morning hours of April 1, a man chased away a thief who attempted to climb through his kitchen window in the 500 block of Rockland Rd. So far there have been no arrests.
