Lacombe break and enter suspect caught twice in 20 hours

Suspect arrested at a Lacombe business last Wednesday was allegedly back in action the following day

A Lacombe break-and-enter suspect is just not getting the message.

Lacombe Police Service caught the same suspect red-handed 20 hours apart last week.

Police said about 11:50 p.m. last Wednesday they were called to a business near 48th Avenue and 46th Street in Lacombe.

It was reported that a man had walked into a business parking lot and then crawled under a gate into a compound.

Lacombe, along with Blackfalds RCMP and an RCMP dog team, searched the area and found a suspect hiding on the roof of a trailer.

A 41-year-old suspect from Lacombe was arrested and charged with business break and enter. He was released on promise to appear in court on June 9.

About 6:50 p.m. the following day police responded to a residential break and enter in progress.

Police arrived and arrested a suspect inside the residence. He was identified as the same culprit arrested the night before.

He is now facing charges of business break and enter, residential break and enter, uttering threats, mischief under $5,000, failing to comply with a court undertaking and making a frivolous 911 call.

He is scheduled to appear in Red Deer provincial court on Wednesday.
