Neighbour helps track down robbery suspect
Door at the Halifax Grammar School unlocked
A 37-year-old Halifax man faces a list of charges, accused of breaking into the Halifax Grammar School and stealing a computer on Sunday.
Halifax police responded to an alarm call at around 8 a.m. at the south-end school. Then, a neighbour on Blue Willow Court called to report a suspicious man in their backyard.
The caller followed the suspicious male to Tobin Street where he identified the suspect to the police. The man was taken into custody.
Officers said they found a laptop stuffed in his sweatshirt.
Police said one of the school’s doors was unlocked.
The suspect is facing break and enter charges, possession of break and enter instruments and three counts of breach of probation. He’ll be back in court on Monday.
It was the second break-in at a school on Sunday.
A 17-year-old boy faces break and enter charges after an incident at J.L. Ilsley High School on Sylvia Avenue early Sunday morning.
