Police charge two men in connection with break and enters


Lethbridge Police have charged two males in connection with a commercial break and enter.

On February 13, police responded to a report of a break and enter at a business along the 3000 block of 30 Street North. Inside the compound, business vehicles had been entered and a significant quantity of tools were taken. Following further investigation by patrol officers and members of the Property Crimes Unit, video surveillance of a suspicious vehicle and two subjects was obtained. Later in the day the subject vehicle was located along with the two males. Both were arrested without incident and the stolen tools were recovered.

Through additional investigation, Trimble was charged with numerous other offences in relation to other break and enters throughout the city dating back to early January. Trimble is further charged with three counts of mischief to property, trafficking in stolen property, two counts of break and enter, housebreaking and commit mischief. Trimble is currently in custody and awaiting a Judicial Interim Release hearing.
