A neighbour who saw someone stealing a television pointed cops in the right direction Thursday evening.
She called police at about 8:10 p.m. from Willowdale Crescent, saying that she'd seen a drunk woman carrying a TV out of a nearby home — a home where she knew the homeowner was away — and into a different home.
Police indeed recovered the television set from that home, and found their suspect inside as well. She was arrested and held overnight in jail.
The woman was to be released Friday with a number of conditions, and has a court date in Brandon for Oct. 25, where she'll face charges of break, enter and theft.
