A Difficult Shoplifter & Copper Piping Theft Leads To Flood

Someone broke into a vacant building on Golden Grove Road and left behind a real mess.

Sgt. Jay Henderson tells us officers responding to a break, enter and theft around 430 Tuesday afternoon found a padlock had been cut off on a door leading to the basement.

Henderson says whoever did this removed and stole about 30 feet of copper plumbing piping causing the water to pour into the basement resulting in exstensive damage.

Officers also responded to a store in East Saint John around 7pm where a 29 year old shoplifter was struggling with store security.

It's believed she had taken $2500 in electronic merchandise and a woman's wallet was found on her that had been reported stolen back in December.

She is facing several charges including possession of stolen goods and assault and she was held 
in custody.
