An adult male and adult female are facing charges in connection with a residential break and enter, while the residents were asleep in the house, as well as fraudulent use of credit card data. On Friday, January 26, 2018, at approximately 1:58 a.m. police were dispatched to a residence on the 100 block of Dalhousie Place for the report of a break and enter.
Two suspects gained access to the residence via a window, making noise and waking one of the residents. The suspects then took various items from the house, and left.
The residents discovered that among the items taken were bank cards. Online banking records showed that there were some unsuccessful attempts made with the stolen bank cards as well as a recent completed transaction, using the stolen card.
On January 27, 2018, Regina police were contacted by the Lumsden RCMP and were informed that a male and female, who were in RCMP custody for an unrelated offence, had items in their possession that appeared to be from the Regina break and enter on Dalhousie Place. Subsequent investigation gathered evidence sufficient to charge the male and female with the January 26th break and enter; they were jointly charged.
Thirty-two year-old Sheena SANDERS, of Winnipeg, and twenty-six year-old Jamie Dean LAVALLEE, of Regina, both face charges of:
- Break and Enter & Commit [CC 348(1)(B)]; and
- Unauthorized Use of Credit Card Data [CC 342(3)].
Both SANDERS and LAVALLEE made their first appearance in Provincial Court on these charges today, January 29, 2018, at 9:30 am.
