RCMP responded and asked for help from the Nelson RCMP, forensic identification section, and police dog service unit.

Cpl. Riordan Bellman says while securing the home for evidence, they received another report that three youths had tried to break into a garage on Davies Avenue.

Police responded immediately and arrested the trio near the scene.

All three suspects are under 18.

Bellman says a number of items were seized from them.

All three were later released into the custody of adults on a promise to appear in court on January 10.

RCMP are asking anyone with information on the incidents to phone them or Crimestoppers.
