Male Charged with B&E

During the early morning of April 5, 2018, members of the Medicine Hat Police Service responded to a residence in the 1100 block of Steel Street SE, for a complaint of a break and enter in progress.  The complainant, who was in the home at the time, called to advise that someone had entered the home and proceeded to pepper spray the homeowners dogs.

Upon arriving at the scene, police officers were confronted by a lone male who was brandishing a can of bear spray and a steel pipe.  After negotiating with the male, he was taken into custody without further incident.

A 35-year-old male is now facing the following charges and is presently in custody awaiting a bail hearing;

·  Break and Enter

·  Possession of a Weapon Dangerous

·  Possession of a Controlled Substance

·  Breach of Probation
