t about 5:19pm RCMP received a report that someone had spotted a driver open the car door and deposit a beer bottle on the ground. The car was described as a white Pontiac Grand Am travelling northbound on Yale Rd. A police unit was at the McDonald's Restaurant and did not see the driver. No word on whether or not the driver gave them the slip.
A few minutes later at 5:36pm a report came in of an attemped B&E at a residence on Henderson Ave. According to police the thug tried to break into the home but the resident was home and entry was not gained.
The 6' "skinny" caucasion male was dressed all in black and wearing a black hoodie, took off running down Henderson towards the Young St. Market. An officer noted that it may not be possible for containment because there weren't enough members available at the time and there was a lot of foot traffic. A short time later police spotted someone "loosely" fitting the description walk in to a Bole St. apartment with two other males.
At 8:38pm a break and enter was reported in the Stoney Creek area.
