North Bay police say there’s value in having a burglar alarm as an incident to a business on Algonquin Avenue proved.
Police got a report of an alarm going off at 4:35am Thursday at a business on the 1800 block of Algonquin and were on the scene within moments.
They arrested a person coming out of the shop.
Police say entry to the business was through the rear of the building which set off the alarm.
A 23-year-old woman is charged with break and enter.
Police say alarms help ensure a quick police response to the scene and encourage merchants to have them installed as well as video surveillance.
They add video helps it easier to identify individuals and can have a tremendous impact when cases go to court.
