A Peterborough woman is facing charges after a residential break-in early Monday.
Around 4:30 a.m., police responded to a home along Middlefield Drive after the homeowners reported being awoken by loud noises. They discovered items in a purse had been taken.
Police believe the home was entered through a garage door.
The investigation led to the location of a suspect in the area.
Alice Bergeron, 22, of Peterborough, was arrested and charged with breaking and entering with the intent to commit an indictable offence, possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000, and failure to comply with probation to keep the peace and be of good behaviour.
