Three people charged in stolen jersey incident

The Calgary Police Service has charged three people in relation to the theft of jerseys and other personal property from a southwest home.

On Thursday, July 9, 2015, police were called to a residence in the community of Windsor Park for reports of a break and enter in a detached garage. The culprits had made off with a bike, three sets of golf clubs and approximately 30 rugby jerseys, valued at approximately $20,250.

On Sunday, July 12, 2015, a box containing some of the jerseys was found by a member of the public who had recognized the items in relation to the story on the news about the initial theft.

Two days later, on Tuesday, July 14, 2015, members of the District 4 Break and Enter Detail and the District 4 Operations Team executed a search warrant on a residence in the 1700 block of 35 Street S.E.
