A Brandon homeowner woke up to find an unwelcome guest early Tuesday morning.
Police were called just after 4 a.m. to the residence in the 800 block of 13th Street. After being woken up by a noise, the homeowner found the front door open, and a highly intoxicated woman passed out on her couch.
The 25-year-old woman was arrested for breach of the peace and lodged at the Brandon Correctional Centre for the night. There was no damage done, and police say the drunk woman mistakenly went to the wrong home.
Meanwhile, Brandon police were busy with a number of other alcohol-related calls. Earlier Tuesday, at 1:30 a.m., police located a highly intoxicated 17-year-old girl in the downtown area. She was detained under the Intoxicated Persons Detention Act and released when sober.
At 12:30 a.m., officers were called to a home in the 600 block of Assiniboine Avenue, after the homeowner was awoken by his motion-activated lights, and saw a man staggering in his backyard. A highly intoxicated man was located by police and was found to be the subject of a recognizance, with conditions to abstain from the consumption of alcohol and abide by a curfew. The 24-year-old man was arrested for two counts of breach of recognizance and lodged at BCC.
On Monday at 10:54 p.m., police were called to the 500 block of Frederick Street for a report of a female causing a disturbance. An 18-year-old woman was located in a drunken state, and she was bound by a recognizance to abstain from alcohol. She was arrested and lodged at BCC.
