Police charge second person connected to Break and Enters

August 25, 2020 

 A 43-year-old woman from Sydney faces more than 30 charges for Break & Enters and Thefts across Sydney.

Cape Breton Regional Police identified the second suspect as a result of ongoing investigation into August Break and Enters at Sydney businesses that first led to charges against a 43-year-old man on August 19th.

The woman was arrested on August 20th, when officers responded to a call from Best Buy that a female left the store with unpaid items in a taxi cab, and they quickly tracked her down at a nearby location on Welton Street. Officers located the stolen items and remanded Danielle Nicole Young to the Cape Breton Correctional Centre for Possession of Property Obtained by Crime and Breaches of previous Court-ordered conditions.

Police were then able to further investigate Young’s suspected involvement in the previously reported incidents, connecting her to Break and Enters at Cabot Powersports, Highland Cellular, D&S Rentals, Compu Clone, Cosmo Prof and Krazy Car Clinic. As a result, Young is now charged with Break and Enter (x7), Theft (x7), Possession of Property Obtained by Crime (x8) and multiple additional Breaches of previous Court-ordered conditions.
