Alert neighbour helps police make arrest in break and enter

 

At 3:20 am, Jan 11, police were called to the Regalane Bowling in Kimberley after an alert resident heard a crashing sound.  Upon attendance police located and arrested a 23 year old male from Cranbrook.

The witness heard a crash and called police, she was able to update police and direct them to the subject. He was caught inside the business, but at another door.

Damage to the doors was over $700 but nothing was taken thanks to the quick action from the caller.  The bowling alley is located on Archibald Street in Kimberley. The subject has been released and will attend court in March.

Police appreciate the efforts of citizens who call when they observe suspicious activity.
