Po­lice make ar­rests fol­low­ing break-in

The Compass - - SPORTS -

Po­lice have ar­rested three peo­ple — two males and a fe­male — in con­nec­tion with a res­i­den­tial break-in on Coun­try Road in Bay Roberts.

The break-in oc­curred some­time be­tween 7 p. m. on Dec. 3 and 9 a.m. on Dec. 4.

A quan­tity of cash and other items were taken from the home.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors with Trinity Con­cep­tion District RCMP got a break in the case later in the day af­ter one of the ac­cused, a 20year- old fe­male from Up­per Is­land Cove, al­legedly used a credit card taken dur­ing the break-in at a con­ve­nience store in Har­bour Grace.

The busi­ness re­ported the stolen credit card, and the fe­male was iden­ti­fied through the use of sur­veil­lance cam­eras at the store. She was ar­rested at about 3 p.m. on Dec. 4, and the two males — a 25- year- old from Up­per Is­land Cove and a 19-year-old from Bay Roberts — were ar­rested later in the day.

The fe­male and one male were re­leased from cus­tody with a court date set for early in the new year. One of the males will re­main in po­lice cus­tody for a Dec. 19 court ap­pear­ance in Har­bour Grace.

Po­lice were able to lo­cate much of the stolen prop­erty.
