Stranger enters Fairview home, shoplifters steal $2,500

Nelson Police are currently investigating a shoplifting incident and a residential break and enter in Fairview.

The Nelson Police are investigating a residential break and enter in Fairview on Monday as well as a Tuesday shoplifting incident on Lakeside Drive.

During the first incident, a Fairview resident awoke to noises in her residence on Monday, December 29 at approximately 9:30 p.m. and discovered a female stranger in her hallway.

“The stranger claimed she had gotten the wrong house and left without incident,” reads a Nelson Police press release from Cst. Lisa Schmidtke.

“The following afternoon the resident noticed an opened bathroom window and realized she had been the subject of a residential break and enter.”

The police attended the scene.

“During the investigation it was determined that there were two suspects who had tried multiple windows around the house before finding one unlocked.”

A neighbour nearby reported hearing someone knocking at approximately 10 p.m. the same night.

The next day at approximately 12 p.m. police received a report of a shop-lifting at a local business in the 1000 block of Lakeside Drive. Two male suspects had entered the business, opened locked security cases and stole approximately $2,500.

“Police have seized surveillance footage of the suspects and identification is pending,” reads the report.

Police did not say if they think the crime is related to the break-in and theft of a safe containing $2,500 from SHARE Nelson over the weekend.

Police are urging anyone with information to contact them at 250-354-3919 or to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
