Edmonton police are crediting an attentive neighbour for helping investigators return stolen property and make arrests in a break and enter case.

Police said on Wednesday, April 5, officers were called to a reported break and enter in the area of 19 Avenue and 33 Street – a concerned citizen had phone police when she heard a loud noise and noticed a suspicious vehicle parked in her neighbour’s driveway.

A short time later, police said two males came out, carrying bags out of the home – the woman took photos of the vehicle and called police.

Those pictures, and surveillance video from another nearby home helped officers find the suspicious vehicle hours later – the suspects were seen by police allegedly trying to pawn the jewelry that had been stolen earlier in the day. Police also saw the same suspects try to steal a bicycle.

Police carried out a traffic stop, and arrested three suspects – a search warrant was executed on the vehicle, and the majority of the stolen property from the break and enter was recovered, including an engagement ring and a wedding band.

Now, the three suspects are facing a number of charges: David Carter, 25, is facing two counts of possession of stolen property, possession of break and enter instruments, theft under $5,000 and housebreaking and commit theft.

Sheldon Young, 41, has been charged with failure to comply with a probation order, and housebreaking and commit theft, and Kirsten Young, 38, has been charged with possession of stolen property.
