Charlottetown police were kept busy during the Labour Day weekend with a slew of calls ranging from breaking up noisy parties, responding to break-and-enters and laying weapons charges.
Police responded to 133 calls for service during the three-day weekend.
One of the calls saw police arrest a 22-year-old city woman in connection to a break and enter at a Fitzroy Street residence on Saturday.
The owner of the home had woken up when he heard his dog barking. He then chased the woman and was able to retrieve some electronics that had been stolen.
The woman was arrested a short time later and was lodged overnight at the provincial correctional centre.
Facing charges for theft and break and enter, she has been remanded into custody until Thursday, Sept. 5, when she’ll have her first date in provincial court.
Police also charged a 20-year-old city man with possession of a weapon dangerous to the public after he got into a fight with another man on University Avenue.
The suspect used bear spray repellant on the other man during the fight, said police.
There were no serious injuries sustained from the incident.
The suspect was also charged with possession of a prohibited weapon.
The man was arrested and lodged overnight at the provincial correctional centre. He will appear in provincial court at a later date.
Police also laid 32 charges under the Highway Traffic Act and three under the Liquor Control Act over the weekend
