Sus­pects caught on cam­era

The Compass - - OPINION -

Two 16-year-old males from Carbonear were ar­rested March 26 in con­nec­tion with sev­eral break and en­ters into a house in Carbonear.

Trin­ity Con­cep­tion District RCMP re­ceived a re­port the pre­vi­ous day that two sus­pi­cious males were at the back door of the house, which had been bro­ken into three times over the past month.

“Un­be­known to the sus­pects, the own­ers of the home, had a video sur­veil­lance sys­tem in­stalled,” said RCMP Cst. Vicki Chalker. “A neigh­bour called the RCMP, how­ever the two sus­pects had de­parted the scene prior to the of­fi­cers ar­rival.”

The video re­vealed the sus­pects were known to po­lice. The two were ar­rested for four counts of break and en­ter and have been re­leased with con­di­tions on a po­lice un­der­tak­ing.

Court is set for May 19.
