Two 19 year old males and one 18 year old male have been charged with several break and enter related offences after Morden Police responded to a call September 5th.
That evening, officers received a call from the victim indicating they had been followed earlier in the night by several unknown people, and now someone was trying to break into his home. While responding, police observed a suspicious vehicle leaving the area, and attempted to stop it, but it fled at a high rate of speed, and was able to evade police. The vehicle was located a short time later, with no one inside and a knife on the front driver seat, and officers noted it had collided with a tree.
Morden Police Service's K-9 unit was called in to search the area, with Police Service Dog Ice and her handler locating the suspect hiding in the grass in a nearby creek.
The accused was taken into custody, and through a subsequent investigation, two other males were arrested in relation to the break and enter:
A 18-year-old male resident of Morden is facing charges of Break and Enter, Wearing a Disguise with Intent, and Mischief.
A 19-year-old male resident of Morden is facing charges of Break and Enter, Wearing a Disguise with Intent and Mischief.
A 19-year-old male resident of the RM of Stanley is facing charges of Break and Enter, Wearing a Disguise with Intent, and Breach of a Probation Order.
All three were released on conditions to attend Morden Provincial Court in November.
