BREAKING: Bread thief raids home in the middle of the night, gets caught trying to hide the evidence
VANCOUVER, BC — A local Vancouver woman was in for the surprise of her life last night when she awoke at 12:30 AM to find an unidentified white male rummaging through the clothes in her bedroom.
CHNL 5 News got an exclusive interview with the woman, who wishes to remain anonymous for personal reasons.
“I was shocked”, the woman said. “At first I was speechless and scared. But then I gathered my wits, threw on the lights and jumped out of bed.”
How did the man react?
“He was surprised. He clearly didn’t expect to be caught.” She responds. “It looked like he was trying to hide something in my clothes. When I confronted him, he grabbed whatever he was trying to hide and escaped. I hardly had any time to react.”
Mr. Wood’s mugshot from 2007, when he was charged and convicted of grand theft.
Earlier that evening, Vancouver police say they got a call from another Vancouver home not too far from this one, claiming a stale, half-eaten baguette was stolen from their kitchen. Police believe the two incidents are related.
Witnesses from both scenes describe the thief intruder as a middle-aged white male about 2 feet tall with black eyes and white hair.
Local police believe Mr. Winkey Wood, an 8 year old Vancouver resident known for his run-ins with the law, may be a suspect in both cases. “Mr. Wood has been linked to other food-related thefts in this arena,” A media spokesperson for the Vancouver Police said in a press meeting earlier this morning. “Another we don’t currently know why he commits these crimes, he is our prime suspect in this investigation.”
Mr. Wood first gained notoriety in the arena when when he was charged and convicted of grand theft back in 2007. Most notably, he is also the son of Chanel Wood, a Vancouver blogger who frequently posts photos of her son on her website. She was not available for comments.
Mr. Wood was last seen at 12:30 AM this morning, and is wanted by the Vancouver Police for theft and breaking and entering. If you have any information that could lead to Mr. Wood’s arrest, you are urged to call the Metro Vancouver Crime Stoppers at 1-800- 222-8477. If you see Mr. Wood, you are advised not to approach him. Police warn that he has previous record of being aggressive when approached, and instead advise you contact Crime Stoppers immediately.
