Charges laid in nighttime break and enters

The Calgary Police Service has laid charges against a man and woman accused in connection with several nighttime break and enters.

The break and enters occurred throughout the city after entry was gained to the homes through open windows on the main floor. In some instances, items were even stolen from residents’ bedrooms while they slept.

Justin Lee SCOTT, 28, of Calgary, is charged with two counts of possession of stolen property under $5,000, and one count each of break and enter, possession of stolen property over $5,000, and failing to comply with court conditions. He remains in custody.

Kayla DRISCOLL, 23, of Calgary, is charged with four counts of theft of a credit card. She has since been released.

More charges are pending.

Both of the accused individuals were identified as a result of tips from the public. The Calgary Police Service would like to thank the community and media for helping circulate photographs and providing tips on the identity of suspects.

Investigators often rely on help from the public to lay charges and keep our city safe. Our Service values the support and strong relationship that exists between Calgarians and our officers.
