Spray painting video surveillance cameras along a neighbourhood couldn’t cover the tracks of an Oakville prowler.
Halton Regional police say the suspect didn’t count on an alert citizen – not the cameras – who noticed his nocturnal behaviour in the area of Sherwood Heights Dr. and Will Scarlett Blvd.
Police followed up on the tip around 1:20 a.m. on October 28 and were able to locate the suspect and make an arrest.
Investigators believe the suspect is responsible for a break-in at a nearby storage facility.
