The Elk Valley RCMP reported a break and enter occurred at Fernie’s City Hall early Saturday morning.
Police were dispatched to City Hall at 2:05 a.m. after an alarm was triggered. The front window had been broken and the culprit reached around to let himself or herself into the building. Police reported seeing footprints on the lobby carpet, but did not see anyone in the building when they were there. Nothing was disturbed past the lobby.
Police noticed an intoxicated man attempting to get into the Seniors Centre across the street. He was arrested down the block. A forensic team reviewed the scene at City Hall to see if there was any connection between the man and the break in. The RCMP are still investigation the situation
