Two Burlington men face charges after a sharp-eyed citizen took notice of suspicious behaviour.

By Staff

BURLINGTON, ON.  April 16, 2013.  A citizen out for a walk on Headon Forest Drive noticed two males entering driveways along the street and peeking into parked vehicles.

She walked to the nearby police station and reported her observations to officers and a detailed description of the men.  Officers responded to the immediate area and located two men in a driveway on Maderna Road.  The pair ran in between some homes and were found hiding under some stairs.

 Once arrested, both were found to be in possession of stolen items.

 Jason BAIRD (36 yrs) and Michael TRUMPER (30 yrs) face charges of Possession of Stolen Property (four counts), Theft Under $5000 (three counts) and Prowl by Night. 

TRUMPER faces an additional charge of Possession of Break-in Instruments.

 Burlington Detectives are investigating to see if these two  suspects were involved in  other related incidents.

 Any additional witnesses or potential victims are asked to contact Detective Jared McLeod at 905 825-4747 x2307.

 The police didn’t name the citizen but at the next Police Services Bard meeting perhaps there could be a quiet recognition of the citizen’s service.
