Police have linked a male to a break and enter after he allegedly used stolen bank cards.

On Tuesday April 5th, Windsor Police officers attended a residence in the 1000 block of Langlois Avenue for a fraud report.

The victim advised that she discovered that her purse was stolen from her kitchen but there was no sign of forced entry.

Police say the back door may have been unlocked for a short period of time the previous evening. She told police that she checked with her banks and learned that some her bank cards were used at several locations without her knowledge.

Members of the Target Base Unit and the Financial Crimes Unit followed up on the investigation and retrieved video surveillance from some of the stores involved and were able to positively identify the alleged suspect.

On Wednesday, officers located the suspect in the area of the 2600 block of Richmond and placed him under arrest without incident. Upon searching the male suspect officers located property belonging to the victim including stolen bank cards.

Henry Lewenza, a 38 year old male from Windsor is charged with Break and Enter, 2 counts of Possession of Stolen Property, 9 counts of Fraud and 2 count of Using Credit Card Obtained by Crime.
