Nelson Police Department saw a break-and-enter case to successful conclusion this week.

On Tuesday, June 4 Paul L’Heureux, a 38-year-old resident of the Balfour area pled guilty to Break and Enter and Possession of Stolen property in relation to a case reported the last week of May in Nelson.

NPD patrol units, GIS and the RCMP identification section worked together to identify, locate and arrest the suspect.  L’Heureux was arrested May 29 after attempting to pawn several of the stolen items at a local pawnshop.

“The use of forensic evidence and a lengthy interview with the suspect yielded the remaining stolen property and linked him to the original B-and-E,” says a release issued by the NPD.

L’Heureux remained in custody in Nelson until his court appearance and will serve his time at a regional correction center in BC.


Police also have a suspect for the recent rash of thefts from, and attempted theft of automobiles in Nelson.

Again, working with the RCMP identification section, forensic evidence has linked a 34-year-old Calgary man to at least one of the offences and a warrant for his arrest is being sought.

The investigation is ongoing and it is believed the suspect has fled the area.

If anyone has information that would assist the Nelson Police please call 250-354-3919 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
