Break and Enter Suspect Waits for Police while Drinking Stolen Beer on Couch


A 33-year-old local man will not be known for making the getaway of the century when instead of fleeing with his partner in crime he sat on the victims’ couch and drank beer he stole while waiting for Kingston Police to arrive.

At approximately 11:15 p.m. on November 30, 2016, two tenants heard some noises while sleeping in their 500-block Albert Street apartment, but thought it was either their other roommates returning or an adjacent residence. Instead, two men had discovered the house and apartment doors were unlocked. They gained entry and stole an Xbox game console, controllers, and a case of beer, the latter taken from the refrigerator.

The two residents became suspicious of the noise and saw one of the suspects fleeing from their porch down the road with a neon green backpack and a large Costco tote bag, which the Xbox and case of beer are believed to be in. He is described as wearing a backwards black and red ball cap and black coat. Unsure where the second suspect was the roommates discovered the man sitting downstairs on their couch, drinking one of the beer he just took from the refrigerator. It appears the man was already under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time.

Kingston Police uniform patrol officers attended and quickly arrested the man for breaking and entering. He was transported to police headquarters and held overnight to attend a bail hearing the following day. The second suspect is still being sought and the gaming console and alcohol has yet to be recovered. The lone beer was seized as evidence.
