Wit­ness 2,000 km away re­ports crime

Cape Breton Post - - CANADA -

BROOK­LIN, Ont. — Po­lice in On­tario say they’ve made an ar­rest after hear­ing from a wit­ness who was 2,000 kilo­me­tres away from the scene of an al­leged crime. Durham re­gional po­lice say they be­gan in­ves­ti­gat­ing after a Toronto-area home­owner who is va­ca­tion­ing in Florida tipped them to a sus­pi­cious ve­hi­cle in her drive­way. Of­fi­cers went to the Brook­lin, Ont., home on Thurs­day morn­ing after the woman — who was look­ing at her se­cu­rity cam­eras on­line — re­ported the sus­pi­cious ve­hi­cle and pro­vided a full li­cence plate num­ber.

When po­lice ar­rived at the home of the ve­hi­cle’s reg­is­tered owner, they saw it pull into the drive­way, then speed off.
