A Lethbridge man arrested on the weekend in connection with several break-ins to businesses on the northside has been released from custody.
Bradley Adam Goosen, 34, was released Monday following a brief bail hearing in Lethbridge provincial court. The Crown agreed to release the accused on $3,000 no-cash bail, and a condition that he remain under house arrest 24 hours a day, with some exceptions. He is also prohibited from going to Walmart and from consuming drugs and alcohol, and he is to reside at a specific residence and inform the Lethbridge Police Service if he changes jobs.
On Jan. 1 police were called to investigate multiple break-ins to buildings in the industrial area in north Lethbridge. Police were able to identify a suspect and make an arrest.
Goosen is charged with five counts of shopbreaking and commit mischief, four counts of mischief causing damage under $5,000, one count each of shopbreaking and commit theft, break and enter to a residence, and taking a motor vehicle without consent.
Crown Prosecutor Clayton Giles recommended the accused be released from custody while the Crown and defence discuss issues relating to identity.
The matter is scheduled to return to court Wednesday.
