The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND -

A teenager from the Mt. Ste­wart area was ar­rested fol­low­ing an in­ci­dent at Jay’s Gro­cery Store in Morell last Mon­day.

Mon­tague RCMP re­sponded to a break, en­ter and theft in progress at the store at 4 a.m.

A lo­cal res­i­dent heard glass break­ing in the vicin­ity of the front door.

A res­i­dent who went to the store to see what was hap­pen­ing came upon a young man at­tempt­ing to steal cig­a­rettes from in­side the store.

The youth was able to get away from the wit­ness and run from the scene.

Kings District RCMP was later able to iden­tify a 17-yearold teen from the Mt. Ste­wart area as the sus­pect.

He was ar­rested and will ap­pear in court later this month in Ge­orge­town to faces charges of break and en­ter to com­mit theft.
