Attempted break & enter in Cole Harbour

A young man is facing charges after he allegedly tried to break into a Cole Harbour home.

The Mounties say the homeowner woke up to someone trying to break into their Parkway Dr. home early Thursday morning.

They phoned 911, and within minutes police were in the area, where officers arrested a suspect a short distance from the home.

Nineteen-year-old Colton James Rourke of Cole harbour is facing charges of break and enter with intent, trespassing at night, possession of break in instruments, and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
