Windsor police have arrested a man believed to be involved at a break and enter at a business in Amherstburg.
Officers from the Windsor police Amherstburg detachment were called to a business in the 7800 block of Howard Avenue in Amherstburg on Sunday, July 28.
A large quantity of electronics and construction-style equipment was reportedly stolen.
Members of the property crimes unit observed a person of interest driving a Chevy Equinox that was believed to be associated with the break and enter the next day. Around 11:00 a.m. officers stopped the vehicle in the 3100 block of Walker Road in Windsor.
They determined the vehicle had been stolen a day earlier and the licence plate registered to another vehicle and been placed on the Equinox. The driver was placed under arrest.
Police found a number of items believed to be stolen from the original break and enter during a search of the vehicle.
Donald Jenkinson, a 37-year-old Windsor man, is charged with break and enter and possession of stolen property.
“This case serves as a fine example of how Windsor Police Service specialty units were able to provide support and assistance to a call for service that originated at our Amherstburg Detachment,” said Sgt. Steve Betteridge in a release.
The matter remains under active investigation.
