The 2600 block of Norman as seen in Google Earth

Two men are in custody after one of them robbed a home and dropped a duffel bag with personal information that was used to track them down.

On Sunday December 30th around 5:30pm, Windsor Police responded to a break and enter call in the 2600 block of Norman Road.

A man living in the home was having a nap when he awoke to the sounds of dish clanking in the kitchen. Police say he got up and found a man trying to steal his video gaming system in his living room.

Police say the suspect gained entry by breaking the glass to the front door. The resident of the house said he walked towards the suspect and the suspect suddenly punched him once in the head, knocking him to the ground. The suspect then fled to a waiting green station wagon with a getaway driver. The vehicle was parked out front with it’s four way flashers on.

As the suspect approached the waiting vehicle, he reportedly shouted “go! go! go!”. The suspect got in and the driver tried to drive away by gunning the engine, but ended up spinning the tires on the icy road.

The resident was able to obtain the vehicle’s license plate due to the time it took for the station wagon to start moving.

Police say the vehicle eventually left the area with difficulty. The resident called police with the information.

It was further discovered that the initial suspect dropped a duffel bag containing personal information as he fled.

The initial suspect was described as a white male, 19-23 years of age, he had a shaved head. He was wearing a long black leather jacket with a white hoodie underneath.

Police were called, and utilizing the license plate, they visited the residence of the registered owner of the vehicle, a woman. She advised police that her boyfriend had borrowed her car with one of his friends. Police located the vehicle parked in the 300 block of Glengarry Avenue shortly after 7pm.

Officers observed the suspects walking towards, and getting into the vehicle. Officers blocked the vehicle in and placed the suspects under arrest without incident. The driver of the vehicle was identified as the boyfriend of the registered owner. The passenger, wearing a long black leather coat with a white hoodie, was identified and matched the witness description as well as the documentation left at the scene. Officers observed a laptop computer and additional electronics in the rear of the suspect vehicle. Many of the items in the vehicle were labelled with a name on them. Officers contacted the named individual on the property and learned that he had just reported that his residence was also broken into in the 3400 block of Church and that some of the property was his.

Police are continuing the investigation and are asking anyone with any information to call (519)255-6700 ex4830 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at (519)-258-TIPS(8477)
