It’s been a busy week for police dealing with crooks not being where they belong and trying to take other people’s stuff.
On Wednesday at 4:15 a.m., Prince Albert Police Service officers were called to a break and enter in progress at a residence in the 400 block of 12th Street. A female had forced her way into a home through an exterior door and was being detained by the homeowner.
Police arrested the 35-year-old woman, who now faces break and enter charges.
Meanwhile, on Monday at 10:04 p.m., police were called about a robbery complaint on the 1500 block of Seventh Street East.
A 15-year-old male told police that he was walking with a group of friends when he was approached by male pointing a canister of bear who demanded his phone.
The victim slapped the canister away and began to run but was chased by the suspect, who unsuccessfully tried to spray him.

The suspect, who was known to the victim, now faces numerous charges including uttering threats, assault with a weapon, robbery and possession of a weapon.
And finally, on Monday at 7:08 a.m., police were called to a business in the 2900 block of Second Avenue West for an eviction.
An employee had shown up early for work and found someone walking around inside the store.
After calling police, the employee asked the man to leave. The suspect selected a few items and left before police arrived.
The male, who is described as aboriginal and heavy set, was wearing a black muscle shirt with grey wind pants.
The man had apparently entered the store through an unsecured door. Police are waiting for the surveillance video from the business as the investigation continues.
