Teenagers thwart attempted break-in

A 49 year old Chilliwack man is in police custody after a failed break-in Friday.

Bremner Robertson allegedly tried to get into a house in the 46,000 block of 3rd Avenue by smashing a window. Two teenagers were home at the time. They called their mother, who was out at the time, and then 9-1-1.

The mother rushed home to confront the intruder, who ran away.

RCMP officers were already in the neighborhood, on an unrelated matter, when the 9-1-1 call came in. Robertson hadn't gotten far when they rounded him up.

He appeared in Chilliwack Provincial Court Monday, and he's been charged with one count of break and enter. He'll appear in court again Jan. 27.
