On September 8, 2019 at 4 AM, Thompson RCMP officers responded to a report of a Break and Enter at a residence in the Burntwood area.
Officers were told that there were two males in black hoodies with crowbars trying to get into the garage at that residence, but had left the area.
Police contacted a Police Dog Services member and his Police Service Dog Deny, who did locate a track. Along the way a machete was located. PSD Deny tracked the males through several residential yards and located a male.
When the PDS officer yelled at the male that he was under arrest and to stop, the male continued to run. PSD Deny was released from his leash and apprehended the male youth.
Officers located a second male youth hiding in a nearby yard. One youth sustained minor injuries from the dog bite.
The youths were found to have committed a Break and Enter at another garage in the area, and they stole cash from a vehicle. They were held in custody and then released by a Judicial Justice of the Peace. They will appear in court this October.
Police would like to remind residents to ensure your vehicles and garages, as well as your homes are locked and secured.
Cst. Sandy Deibert is asking that anyone who suspects that they have had unwelcome visitors on your property overnight to please report this to police.
