Remove Valuables from Your Vehicles: Kingston Police

Kingston Police remind you to never leave valuables in your vehicle, after officers found two men checking car doors on Brackenwood Crescent in the west end early Wednesday.

An officer who was close by arrived quickly after reports of their activity came in, and apparently one of the men ran northbound. Police say the officer found him hiding in a driveway and holding a woman's purse.

The accused man, 25, was held at police headquarters to attend a bail hearing the following day. The man was charged with theft, possession of stolen property, and breach of undertaking.

Police say they found him to be in possession of a woman's purse, a man's wallet, sunglasses, and a break-in tool. The force says the stolen items were returned to the rightful owners.
