Rash of break-ins in Summerside

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - PROVINCE -

Summerside po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a num­ber of break and en­ters that have oc­curred at area busi­nesses this week. On Wed­nes­day, of­fi­cers re­sponded to a break and en­ter at Wa­ter Street East Auto Sales. Keys for a 2011 Buick were taken and the ve­hi­cle was then stolen from the ve­hi­cle park­ing lot. A 54-year-old Char­lot­te­town man has been ar­rested and is in po­lice cus­tody. The man will face crim­i­nal charges of auto theft and break and en­ter at a fu­ture date in Summerside Pro­vin­cial Court. Also as a re­sult of this in­ves­ti­ga­tion, this same man will face charges of a residential break and en­ter re­cently in Stratford. On Thurs­day, Summerside po­lice were called to three early morn­ing busi­ness break and en­ters. Two Wa­ter Street busi­nesses were bro­ken into and, in both in­ci­dents, the cul­prits were scared off by se­cu­rity alarms. A third busi­ness on Jenk­ins Av­enue was also bro­ken into where sev­eral pieces of paint­ball equip­ment were stolen. A sur­veil­lance video cap­tur­ing this crime is posted on The Guardian web­site.
