A 44 year-old male is facing charges in connection with a business break and enter, which occurred on Saturday, April 20, 2019.
On Saturday, April 20, 2019, at about 6:07 a.m., police were dispatched to a mall in the area of 1st Avenue and Albert Street. Information received indicated a male on a bike was seen behaving suspiciously, trying the doors of several businesses. When police arrived and checked the area, they did not locate any suspects; however, a short time later there was an alarm call to a business on the 2700 block of Avonhurst Drive. Police were able to access video of the incident and obtained a good description of the male suspect’s clothing, as well as his distinctive gait. This information was shared with other officers on patrol and, on Sunday, April 21st, at about 1:30 a.m., patrol members located an individual who matched the description of the suspect in the Break and Enter. A search, incident to arrest, found a substance believed to be methamphetamine, as well as break and enter tools, and articles believed to be stolen property. The male was subsequently charged.
