Windsor Police arrested a break and enter suspect at the scene of the crime this past weekend.

Police say that it was around 4:45am on Saturday, August 26, 2017, when patrol officers in the area of Park Street and Ouellette Avenue came into contact with a male who reported a break and enter in progress.

The male advised that he owns a business located in the 200 block of Wyandotte Street West. He further reported that at approximately 4:40am he received a phone call from his alarm company indicating that the alarm had been triggered, and he drove to the business to investigate.

Upon his arrival, he witnessed a suspect inside the business actively gathering items together.
