Manitoba man arrested in connection with break-ins

Man arrested after two break-ins on 500 block of Second Street West in Revelstoke early Wednesday morning.

It wasn’t the wake up Trevor English expected. In the middle of the night, he heard a loud crash. His first thought was it was the new shelf he installed to hold his microwave.

When he got downstairs, he found his front door had been busted in and a man leaving his home holding a bunch of food. He found out his neighbours home had also been broken into.

The man ran off as English called the police.

Revelstoke RCMP responded quickly, arresting a 32-year-old Manitoba man in connection with the two thefts, which took place on the 500 block of Second Street West at around 2 a.m.

The man was charged with two counts of break and enter, and trespassing. He is scheduled to appear in Salmon Arm Provincial Court on Thursday, Nov. 13.
