Trail RCMP have suspect linked to break and enters

Search of Trail home uncovers links to other recent thefts

Trail RCMP may have put an end to a recent local crime spree.

Police announced Tuesday that they have a suspect in custody connected to a vehicle theft and break and enter.

The Trail and Greater District Detachment responded to two commercial break and enters on Friday at Ackland Grainger and Gerick Sports.

Both businesses had its front doors smashed with cash and property stolen.

Sgt. Darren Oelke of the Trail detachment said in a press release that video surveillance captured images of the male suspect and a vehicle.

On Saturday, the stolen Ford F350 used by the suspect was located in West Trail. Investigation soon led police to a residence on Wilmes Lane in Trail where a 37-year-old female was taken into custody.

A search warrant was executed at the residence and evidence from both of the break and enters was seized along with items stolen from a break in at Sound West in December 2014.

Items recovered from the stolen truck also linked the suspect to a theft of tools from a City of Trail work truck.

It is believed the couple recently relocated to Trail from the Lower Mainland. The female was released with a pending court date of April 2 in Rossland.

Tuesday morning, Kamloops RCMP arrested the male sought in the local break and enters after he stole a “bait” vehicle in Kamloops. Kamloops Detachment is investigating a rash of crimes committed overnight.

The male will be held in custody and will be facing numerous charges related to his crime spree in Trail.
