A local man charged with break and enter and theft of $5,000 or under was in court yesterday (Aug. 28) to set a date for a trial or hearing. The session was rescheduled to continue Sept. 11, however.
Matthew Emmanuel Lucani was charged after a B&E at local business Bumper to Bumper Auto Parts Plus on July 18 2018.
Police responded to an alarm at Bumper to Bumper in the early hours on July 18, where they found the business’ glass door smashed.
Later that morning, at around 9 a.m., patrolling RCMP members found and arrested Lucani. He remains in custody.
Lucani was also in court Aug. 28 on an unrelated charge stemming from a June 29, 2018 offence. He is charged with possessing a weapon for dangerous purpose and breach of probation. This session was also rescheduled to continue Sept. 11, when Lucani should receive a date for trial or hearing for these charges.
