Tips lead to break-in arrests

When police say they depend on the eyes and ears of the general public to solve crimes, they just have to point to two recent break and enters at the Nanoose Bay A&W as an example.

RCMP Sergeant Darrell Roberson reported this week that police received numerous credible tips about who may have been responsible for the two break ins, which happened in April and June.

Robertson said a substantial amount of cash was taken in the attacks.

Based on information from the public however, police swooped in on Sunday, August 28 and arrested two young men who they believe were responsible for both break ins.

The youths, who cannot be named because of their age, were released and will appear in court in mid-September to face charges of break and enter, possession of stolen property and possession of a controlled substance.

 

“The Oceanside RCMP would like to thank the public for the many tips they received that assisted in locating and arresting two male youths deemed responsible,” Robertson said.
