Electronics stolen while Portage residents asleep

  • Print

In what may be one of the quietest home invasions ever in the province, the RCMP reported householders slept through a break-in that resulted in the theft of household electronics in Portage la Prairie.

The odd circumstances may be the reason RCMP didn’t call the incident a home invasion, even though the break-in was conducted while the householders were all at home.

On Sunday at approximately 11:30 a.m., Portage la Prairie RCMP received a report of a break-and-enter in a residence on the 500 block of 11th Street NW, the detachment reported today.

Investigation revealed that illegal entry was gained between the hours of 5 and 10 a.m. when the alleged suspects entered the residence and stole various electronics.

Residents were at home and asleep during this incident. There were no injuries reported.

The RCMP continues to investigate.
