At 1:15 a.m. police responded to a report from Downtown Towing to report that an alarm was going off at at is 750 Mackenzie Avenue South location.

The RCMP received a complaint from the owner of a residence on Cameron Street at 10:40 a.m. that as he entered the residence, he interrupted a male trying to kick in the door on his balcony during an attempted break-in.

The property resident provided a clear description of the male and approximately five minutes later a male was taken into custody matching the description given.  The matter is still under investigation.

At 9:45 a.m. police received a report from OK Tire located at 25 Borland Street that someone attempted to break into the business. The owner was alerted by the alarm company and police attended.  Upon police arrival at the scene a rock was seen on the ground in front of the door and pieces of glass everywhere. The second layer of window had not broken but had been pushed in.  The intruder did not manage to gain access to the business.

Three men were arrested Sunday evening after a break and enter at Mountview Store on Dog Creek Road.

At 10:30 p.m. all available police units were dispatched to a complaint of a break and enter in progress at the store.

Upon police arrival, the business representative told police a male had broken the window to the store and grabbed something that was later determined to be beer.

The male then got into a vehicle with two other males and was sitting in the parking lot. As police approached, the vehicle left the store.

Police located and stopped the vehicle on Dog Creek Road and the three occupants of the vehicle were arrested for break and enter. All three were heavily intoxicated and taken into custody.  Charges are pending.
