DATE: December 26, 2012

RCMP FILE: 2012-70565

A home intrusion alarm on the 11,000 block of Pretty Road alerted Lake Country RCMP to a break and enter in progress at 11:03 on Christmas Day. The suspects had walked through the yard from a neighbor’s driveway to the backyard and attempted to pry open a back window. The alarm most likely scared the suspects away, as there were spin-out tire marks in a neighbor’s yard. Foot prints in the snow indicate that one set of prints is from a skater shoe, and the other is from a Nike SHOX running shoe.
