Uninvited neighbour drops by White Rock home for drinks

Highly intoxicated White Rock woman arrested and facing break-and-enter charges

A 36-year-old White Rock woman who allegedly helped herself to a neighbour’s liquor supply Friday morning is facing break-and-enter charges.

Const. Janelle Shoihet said police were called to the 15400-block of Pacific Avenue just after 8 a.m. Dec. 9, when a 12-year-old reported that a woman had walked into a home where two “young residents” were getting ready for school. The woman asked the pair where they kept the liquor, then proceeded to make herself at home, Shoihet said.

“The female… located a bottle of vodka in a kitchen cupboard and proceeded to drink half, before picking up a cup and bottle of vermouth and making herself comfortable at the dining room table,” she said.

The victims told police they convinced the woman to leave after she told them that she had recently moved in down the street.

Shoihet said police later located and arrested a highly intoxicated female in a residence just a few houses away from where the alleged break-in occurred.
