Police nab suspect in liquor store break-in

Value of stolen booze - $300
Total damage to LCBO - $3,500
Getting caught at 2:00 a.m.
with a texas mickey - Priceless!

At least one Timmins man is not likely a regular viewer of CSI on television. Timmins police arrested a break-in suspect Thursday after blood and a piece of clothing were left at the scene of the crime.
Police say the break-in occurred early Thursday morning at the LCBO store in the Hollinger Court when a rock was used to smash a window.
Police officers arriving on the scene, saw blood and a piece of clothing outside the smashed window. The police K-9 unit was called out at 1:34 a.m. and a suspect was tracked to the front of a house on nearby Borden Avenue.
At that time, police also seized a large bottle of liquor, often referred to as a Texas Mickey.
Police say a 29-year old man was arrested and charged with break, enter and theft, possession of stolen goods, mischief and six counts of breaching probation.
Police are seeking a second suspect in the break in. The total value of the stolen alcohol was roughly $300. The damage done to the window and a cash register was $3,500.
