Break and Enter Quickly Solved by LaSalle Police Officers

A 40-year-old, male, Windsor resident, was arrested just before 5:00 AM this morning for several criminal offences related to a break and enter to a LaSalle business.

At this time, a LaSalle Police Officer was on general patrol when he noticed the male riding a bicycle, carrying a large box containing several packages of cigarettes. The officer stopped to investigate and found that he had several new lottery tickets in his possession as well. The male could not provide a reasonable explanation as to how he came into possession of the items.

Additional officers checked nearby businesses and discovered that a gas station/convenience store on Malden Road in LaSalle had been broken into. After investigating the scene and consulting with the store owner it was determined that the items had been stolen from that location.

The male was arrested for Break and Enter, Theft, and Possession of Stolen Property. He was later released with a court date to answer to the charges.

The property was seized and later returned to the owner.
