Break and enter interrupted

One person in custody in connection with break and enter on Young Street

One person remained in custody as of Tuesday morning in connection with the interrupted break and enter of a residence in the 400-block of Young Street July 4.

According to Cpl. Don Wrigglesworth a resident of a neighbouring unit heard banging and notified police.

Upon arriving officers noticed the front door had been pried open and found a male inside allegedly with a number of items in his possession, including a child’s piggy bank.

The suspect, identified as Matthew Toker, 41 of Fairview Road, then reportedly tried to flee out the back patio door and after a brief struggle with police was taken into custody.

He has since appeared in court on a charge of break and enter with intent and possession of a controlled substance.
