Just a couple of hours later, police responded to reports of a break and enter in progress, although no suspects were found.

Two other incidents, one occurring at 3 a.m. and another half an hour later, resulted in an arrest, with a 43-year-old male now facing charges of mischief over $5,000 and three counts of breach of probation.

A second incident, also on Sunday, occurred in the 100 block of East Street South. Suspects are said to have entered an unlocked door, but once inside the stair hallway, broke through drywall and insulation to enter the main floor business.
