Mounties arrested a teen early Thursday who tried to break into a Cole Harbour home.
Police got the call from a homeowner on Parkway Drive around 3:30 a.m.
“They called 911 and within minutes RCMP, with the assistance of Halifax Regional Police K-9 Unit, were in the area,” said an RCMP news release.
“The man was located a short distance from the residence where he was placed under arrest without incident.”
Colton James Rourke, 19, of Cole Harbour, was remanded into custody. He appeared in Dartmouth provincial court Friday on charges of break and enter with intent, trespassing at night, possession of break in instruments, and possession of weapon for dangerous purpose.
