Windsor Police have arrested a man they believe is responsible for a break in in Walkerville.

Just after midnight this morning, a man living in the 1200 block of Devonshire Road heard his rear door being locked and his car alarm going off. The man went downstairs to investigate and noticed that some computer equipment, a bottle of wine as well as a yellow handled fillet knife was missing. The man and his wife called police to report the incident.

Windsor Police attended the residence a short time later. No suspects were located at the residence. Additional responding Police units observed a male at 12:39am walking Northbound in the 1100 block of Devonshire in a hurried manner. Officers questioned the male who was not cooperative. He refused to identify himself and would not remove his hands from his pockets. The male was placed under investigative detention as he was a suspect in the Break in.

While handcuffing the male, officers observed 3″ of knife blade sticking out of the bottom of his backpack. His backpack was removed to facilitate handcuffing. A laptop was observed in the backpack through an open compartment zipper. Officers discovered gloves and a mask on his possession. He was subsequently arrested for the Break and Enter. A search of the backpack revealed a Laptop with the victim’s business card affixed to it, a bottle of wine, a yellow handled fillet knife, and a quantity of cash. All of the recovered property was from the residence and was returned to the owner.

Christopher Bauer, 20 years of age from windsor is charged with Break and Enter, Mischief, and Possession of Stolen Property.
