One man was arrested early this morning in connection to a reported break and enter to a house.
At approximately 3:30 a.m., April 9, 2019, Patrol members were dispatched to a home in the 1600 block of Arlington Avenue for a reported break and enter that had just occurred. The suspect had fled prior to Police arrival. The homeowner told officers that she was woken up to her dog barking and saw that her purse, wallet and car keys had been taken, and the front door was open. A Canine track lead officers to parked vehicles that had been broken into and rummaged through. As another Patrol member was on their way to the scene, a male suspect exited a yard near Taylor Street East Arlington Avenue and crossed the street in front of the officer. He was carrying a backpack and purse and had his face concealed. The officer exited his Patrol car and arrested the suspect without incident. Various other items were located in the suspect’s possession that are believed to be stolen from vehicles.

Anyone who believes they may be a victim involved in this incident is asked to contact the Saskatoon Police Service at 306-975-8300 or come to Police Headquarter at 76 25th Street East, to file a report.
