B&E to business - male in custody

17-30043 Break and enter, male in custody

On November 5th at 4:20AM police responded to a report of a break and enter in progress to the After-work Oasis in north east crescent heights. Upon arrival a witness provided cell phone video of the suspect(s) vehicle fleeing the scene just prior to police arriving. Police recognized this vehicle as one associated to a suspect who had recently been charged with breaking into the same establishment on October 5th.

Police located the suspect vehicle at a local hotel on 13 AVE SE and set containment on the hotel suite known to be occupied by the suspect. The suspect eventually emerged from his suite and was taken into custody without incident. Police are currently still investigating. Search warrants are being applied for to gather further evidence from the hotel suite and the seized vehicle the suspect used to commit the crimes.

The suspect, who is currently out on a $7,500.00 cash deposit bail from the previous break-in, cannot yet be named (until charges are sworn before the courts) is currently in custody awaiting a judicial interim release hearing with the Calgary Bail Office.
