Resident interrupts break-in
A man returned to his Metcalfe Street apartment to find an unknown man inside stealing his belongings. The suspect fled the apartment but was chased by the resident and a neighbour to the front lawn, where he was tackled and held until officers arrived, police said Monday. Stolen cigarettes, electronics and running shoes were found in the intruder’s backpack, police said. A 44-year-old St. Thomas man is charged with breaking and entering and possession of stolen property. He was later released on a promise to appear in court.
