Youths arrested after vigilant neighbour calls police
An observant neighbour’s call to Kingston Police resulted the arrest of two youths caught breaking into a car and prowling around a house.
At approximately 2 a.m. on Thursday, May 31, 2018, the neighbour noticed the interior lights on in his neighbours’ car, and that the driver’s side door was open. He then noticed the two youths prowling around his neighbour’s house. One of the youths had a bandana over his face, according to a press release from Kingston Police. The neighbour called the police, who responded and located the youths at Purcell Street and Old Colony Road.
Both youths were arrested and, during a search, officers found a knife, break-in tools, loose change and a bong on the accused 17-year-old, who was also found to be wanted for failing to attend court just two days earlier on Tuesday, May 29.
Both youths were arrested and taken to Kingston Police Headquarters. Police did not release the age of the second, younger youth, who was warned by police and later released to a parent. The 17-year-old was held to attend a bail hearing and was charged with theft, prowl at night, having face-masked to commit an offence, possession of break-in tools, four counts of breach of probation, and failure to attend court.
