Thieves break into shed with police waiting inside

Three men got a bit more than they bargained for on Wednesday when they broke into a shed in Grand Falls-Windsor.

When the three men entered the shed, the RCMP were waiting inside.

Police arrested 51-year-old Gary Ogden and 31-year-old Gregory Snow after a brief foot pursuit. The third person fled the area. Efforts are underway for his arrest.

Between the evening of Monday, November 14, and Tuesday morning, November 22, Grand Falls-Windsor RCMP responded to reports of twelve break and enters into commercial sheds.

Two of those locations were struck twice within that same time period. The thieves made off with various brands of snow blowers, lawnmowers and lawn trimmers.

Officers set up inside one location that was struck on Tuesday evening anticipating the return of the suspects. At approximately 2:30 a.m. Ogden, Snow and another man kicked the door in.

A car used during this break and enter was seized as part of the investigation.
