August 18 – 19, 2020 News Release

Break and Enter

A 33 year old male was arrested on the 18th of August shortly after 5:00 PM. The male was arrested in relation to a break and enter to a south end residence on the 17th of August in the afternoon.  The male had entered the residence through an unlocked door and removed a credit card from a wallet that was nearby.  The home owner was alerted to the intrusion by their pet parrot greeting the thief with a “hello”.  The home owner did not pay the parrot much attention to the bird as he isn’t always a reliable source of information.  The male was photographed by a neighbour as he left the residence and police were contacted.  The male was then captured by security cameras using the cards at a local store.  He was identified and arrested.

The male was held in custody for a bail hearing facing charges of “break and enter”, theft and using a stolen credit card.

Bail Violations

On the 18th of August at 9:50 PM officers stopped a rented U-Haul truck on George Street.  The Brockville Police were contacted about the vehicle as it had been spotted by the complainant cruising around storage lockers at a location outside of the city.  The driver was identified as a 27 year old Ottawa resident who was on court ordered conditions not to be out of his residence.  The male was arrested and held in custody for a bail hearing.

Trespass by night

A 41 year old male was arrested in the city’s north end as residents from the area reported to police that a male was trying to gain access to vehicles.  The male was arrested when officers attended the area and charged with trespassing by night.  The male will appear in court at a later date to answer to the charge.
