Windsor Police say that their Target Base unit have been investigating several property crimes recently including thefts from vehicles and break and enters. These incidents have taken place over the past several weeks in an area bound by Giles Blvd to the North, Jackson Park to the South, Janette Avenue to the West and Ouellette Avenue to the East.

Police say that they established a person of interest and were patrolling the area Wednesday October 29th,  when at approximately 1:05am they received a call in the 1500 block of Dougall Avenue in relation to a prowler.

>The caller to police indicated that he heard a noise from his front porch and could see a male lurking by a neighbours garage.

As police were in the area, a second homeowner in the 1500 block of  Dougall Avenue advised police that she discovered her pedestrian door ajar.
Officers attended the 1500 block of York Street and observed the person of interest riding a bicycle at approximately 2:30am.   His description matched what was provided to police regarding the Dougall Avenue prowler.  Police searched the suspect and discovered two ladies watches in his possession.
Police have also recovered video from an incident on October 28th, where there was an attempted break and enter in the 2200 block of Victoria Avenue.  Police say that they are satisfied that the person in the video is the suspect who was arrested early this morning.  He is also a suspect in relation to a break and enter and theft of motor vehicle in the 1500 block of York Street that occurred October 26th.
Police are continuing their investigation.  The 35-year-old Windsor man remains in custody, and is expected to appear in Court this afternoon.  He is charged with attempt break and enter.  Additional charges are pending.
