We hope that this latest arrest sends a message to criminals that crime will not be tolerated on our watch.

We also would like to encourage residents to take the time to open cases against suspects following arrests for crimes like opportunistic theft and trespassing to ensure that criminals are forced to face the consequences of their actions before they move on to commit more serious crimes,
