Campbell River couple face break and entry charges in Oceanside

An investigation into a morning Break and Enter on Morello Road in Nanoose Bay has resulted in the Oceanside RCMP recommending charges against a Campbell River couple.

On Nov. 4 at approximately 10:30 a.m., a homeowner was alerted by a co-worker who was driving by and saw a suspicious vehicle in her driveway.

The homeowner immediately drove home and found an unfamiliar vehicle with a female inside, parked in her driveway.

When questioned, the female claimed that her male friend was in the backyard of the house completing a maintenance estimate.

The man then emerged and stated that he was in the back yard doing an estimate for gutter cleaning.

The property owner asked the man where his tools were, or if he had a business card? He responded by getting into the car with his female friend and fleeing the area.

The homeowner then discovered that the side door to her residence had been pried open, several rooms had been rummaged through and there were possessions missing.

The Oceanside RCMP General Investigation Section narrowed the suspects down and the victim in this case identified two individuals.

Charges of Break and Entry have been recommended against 37-year-old Shane Hogue and 29-year-old Amanda Pawlak. Both reside in the Campbell River area.

“This serves as a great example of neighbours looking out for one another and reporting suspicious behaviour,”  says Oceanside RCMP Cpl. Jesse Foreman.
