CRIME: ATTEMPTED BREAK AND ENTER

DATE: December 9, 2013

RCMP FILE: 2013-68471

The resident of a home on the 11,000 block of Dakota Road was a little unnerved when he heard his dogs barking just after midnight on December 9, 2013. As he descended the stairs to investigate he could see a man at the back patio doors peeking in the window and shaking the door knob trying to get in. The man fled around the house to the front yard, darted across the lawn and back out on to Dakota Road. Lake Country RCMP called in Police Dog Services but they lost the tracking at Lodge Road. The man is described as a slim Caucasian man, 25-30 years old, clean shaven with short black curly hair and black rimmed glasses. He was wearing a two-toned ski jacket or vest.
