Health Club takes a hit; bandit takes cash; police nab bandit. Bandit will get a change of address.

BURLINGTON, ON  July 25, 2012  It didn’t take long for the Halton Regional Police to make an arrest in the July 22nd break-in to the Cedar Springs Health and Racket Club, located at 960 Cumberland Ave.

The suspect used a rock to smash the front window, and then used tools to break into the ATM located on the premises, stealing the cash inside.

Investigation quickly identified a suspect that led to an arrest the next day.  A search warrant was executed at the suspect’s residence, where police found stolen cash and tools used to break into the ATM.

Bandit left with just the cash from the Cedar Springs Health Club – but left something behind that allowed the police to arrest him the next day.

The suspect is also believed to be responsible for a June 27th attempted break –in at the Burlington Professional Centre located at 3155 Harvester Rd.  On that occasion the suspect disabled the alarm system, but was not successful in gaining entry.

The suspect clearly polished up his skills and got the cash but also got his picture taken or left a fingerprint.  Probably enough evidence to send him off to a different club – where he will probably further improve his skills.

Isaac Lucas, 34 years, of Stoney Creek is charged with:  Break and Enter;  Attempted Break and Enter; Mischief Under $5000; Possession of Burglary Tools and Breach of Probation (four counts).  This fellow doesn`t seem to be able to take advantages of the second chances he is given.
