Public tip leads to arrest of suspected thief in Nelson

A report of a suspicious male in Fairview on Saturday night helped lead police to an arrest of a Kaslo man.

A report of a suspicious male in Fairview on Saturday night helped lead police to an arrest of a Kaslo man who is believed to be responsible for recent break-ins.

Just before 11 p.m. on Saturday, Nelson Police Department members responded to a call about the suspicious man.

“The male was suspected to have committed a recent break and enter to a Fairview business and was diligently spotted by the business owner and reported,” a police release stated.

Prior to police arrival, the suspect was able to seek cover in a Fairview residence but the business owner was able to pinpoint his location. As a result, officers were able to effectively locate and arrest the 29-year-old from Kaslo.

The man was transported to police cells where he was brought before a Justice of the Peace and eventually released on conditions to appear in Nelson Court next month, facing a charge of Break and Enter.

The man has also been recently charged with multiple thefts and possession of stolen property in separate and unrelated incidences.
