Thief takes two swords in Brandon break-in

  • Print

BRANDON -- Brandon police arrested a man after a Victoria Avenue house was broken into early Saturday by a man who took swords.

The swords came from Nancy Rowley's home, and she said the ornamental weapons were Hollywood replicas and unsharpened.

"They're like collectible Lord of the Rings swords," she said. "They're just showcases, they're not meant to be weapons. They're like exact replicas of what you would see in the movies."

But she said the blades can definitely be used as weapons.

Rowley said she suspects the burglar forced her garage door open, took the two blades, which are about a half-metre long, a set of new golf clubs and a crowbar.

Police said the man was arrested shortly after the call for possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

The swords were retuned to Rowley's garage and she said police had no issue with the weapons.
