Jewels and power tools: Chase RCMP investigating after residence burglarized

Alleged burglar entered residence through an unlocked window

Power tools, paperwork, jewelry and a car were allegedly stolen from a Pritchard man’s home.

Sgt. Barry Kennedy of the Chase RCMP said on Oct. 5, police were notified of a residential break and enter in Pritchard. The resident had been out of town for a few days and returned home to discover someone had gained entry.

Police determined the burglar’s point of entry was an unlocked window. A forensic examination of the residence was completed and evidence was collected.
