Police and dog nab suspect

Police beat stories

In the early morning of May 14, RCMP received a report that a man was seen checking out vehicles on Cheviot Road and Fairway Drive.

It was shortly after 1:20 a.m., when officers and the police responded to the area and nabbed a 50-year-old suspect. The investigation confirmed that the man was in possession of a wallet and medication that belonged to someone else.

He was arrested and then advised that he had stolen the items from a vehicle on Sandtrap Drive. All the items were returned to the owner. Charges are pending.

Other break, enter and thefts being investigated by police include:

– On May 14, at 10:07 a.m., a security guard reported that he had two youths in custody whom he had caught breaking into Southgate School. The two males, ages 19 and 17, admitted to the attempted break-in. But instead of heading to court, they will go  through the Restorative Justice Program.

– On May 13, at 3:01 p.m., police responded to a complaint of a residential B&E on Garfield Road. Officers found the back door kicked in. A Sony 42-inch TV and jewelry were stolen.

– On May 10, at 12:18 p.m., a 63-year-old woman returned home to the 500 block of Erickson Rd. to find a male suspect fleeing from her residence. The man was described as 5’8”, medium build, dark hair, wearing a grey jacket with a red stripe. The man fled without stealing anything. Officers and a police dog conducted a search but could not find the suspect.

Mom calls cops on son

On May 10, at 2:41 a.m., a 41-year-old woman reported that her 24-year-old son and his friend took her vehicle without consent and that he had no driver’s licence.

Investigating officers followed up and discovered that the pair had used the vehicle to transport a stolen ATV. The two suspects then returned to the complainant’s residence with a stolen 2009 Honda Quad. Both males fled when they saw police. The stolen quad was seized and two are facing charges.

Tip-off

On May 9, RCMP received a report that two people were going to rob the Save on Gas Bar on Dogwood St.

Officers arrived and monitored the station until closing, but the would-be thieves never arrived.
