Break and Enter to Residence

On October 16, 2019, police responded to a report of a Break and Enter to a residence through an attached garage in the 100 block of Waverley Drive. The female suspect is believed to have forced the garage door at approximately 6:00 am. Once inside the residence, she stole a variety of personal items, including an iPad, over the counter and prescription medication, alcohol and a duffle bag. The suspect also attempted to take a TV. The family was home during this break and enter, but did not discover it had occurred until they woke.

Prior to receiving the report, police had checked a female pedestrian in the area. She provided a different name than her own during her stop, but officers were not able to confirm this at the time of her stop. As officers were not aware of the Break and Enter at that time, the female was able to continue on her way.

Video surveillance from the neighbourhood captured images of the female suspect in the area, and led police to believe she was stashing items in the neighbourhood. Most of the stolen items were recovered once police conducted a search.

Investigation led police to the arrest of a 33-year-old female, at approximately 4:30 pm, when she returned to the neighborhood.

She was lodged at Brandon Correctional Centre and will appear in court today on charges of Break and Enter, Public Mischief, and she was also found to be wanted on charges of Utter Threats, Assault, and Fail to Comply with Probation X 4.
