In the early morning hours of January 22, Cranbrook RCMP received a report of a break and enter in progress at a residence where a suspicious fire had been reported four days earlier.
The quick response by officers led to the arrest of two Cranbrook youths and seizure of offence related property.
One youth was released before a Judicial Justice of the Peace with strict conditions while the other youth has been held in custody and is scheduled to appear in Court on January 25.
Cranbrook RCMP have determined both offences are related and the residence was targeted. The investigation is ongoing.
