Break and Enter

June 24th, 2019 - A forty three year old St. Thomas man was arrested last evening around 7:30 pm in the Lake Margaret area after an incident where he was caught by alert citizens trying to steal from garages. An off duty police officer was standing in the back of her garage when she was startled by a man who walked right in through the open door. The man took off once he saw the woman and continued down the street. The homeowner followed the man down the road in her vehicle while calling police. She observed him enter another open garage and rifle through a tool box. An off duty officer attended the scene and attempted to arrest the male. A short scuffle ensued and the male was taken into custody quickly on STPS arrival. The man is now charged one count Break and Enter, one count Utter Threats, one count Resist Arrest and one count Breach of Release Conditions. He was held in custody at the Colin McGregor Justice Building overnight for court.
