Two people arrested after multiple vehicle break-ins

Halifax District RCMP has arrested two people after vehicle break-ins in Grand Lake and Waverley.

At approximately 9:15 a.m. on August 8, police were dispatched to a complaint of a vehicle break-in at Laurie Provincial Park in Grand Lake. Police learned that the driver’s side window of the vehicle was smashed and a number of items were taken from inside the vehicle including a GPS unit.

While investigating the first complaint, police received another complaint of a vehicle break-in, this time on Waverley Rd. in Waverley. Police learned that the vehicle window had been smashed and that a wallet had been stolen from inside the vehicle.

A third complaint, this time from a business in Fall River, was received a short time later of a man and woman trying to pay for pre-paid VISA cards and lottery tickets with multiple bank cards. Police responded and located a white pickup truck that the man and woman had reportedly been using.

Police located the man and woman sitting in the pickup truck and observed a stack of bank cards on the centre console. The man and woman were arrested without incident and taken to the Lower Sackville RCMP Detachment where they were later released. Both will be facing charges as follows:
