A thief with tomato sauce

Nelson police blotter: tomato sauce bandit caught

A man was caught red-handed breaking in to a Nelson restaurant last week — or make that red-faced.

A man was caught red-handed breaking in to a Nelson restaurant last week — or make that red-faced.

Staff showed up for work one morning to find someone already inside.

He ran away but employees were able to describe him to police, and he was found shortly afterward in Cottonwood Park, where he was found to have items stolen from the restaurant and also had tomato sauce on his face.

The 44-year-old suspect was charged with break and enter and made his first court appearance the same day.

Jailed for breaching conditions

Another 44-year-old man was arrested in Lakeside Park Friday for breaching his release conditions for a sexual crime in another town.

Police didn’t say exactly what he did, but he’s being held in custody pending a court appearance on Monday.

Arrest in domestic dispute

A 46-year-old man has been charged with breaching a peace bond after a domestic dispute in the 400 block of Victoria Street one evening last week.

Police arrived in time to arrest the man, who was trying to run away.

He appeared in court Friday morning.
