Two males and one female have been arrested after a home invasion early Monday morning (March 9).  Three subjects forced their way into a home on King Street in Cranbrook around 2 a.m.  Inside they assaulted a female and stole jewelry and a laptop.

Within a short time, RCMP arrested the four subjects.  Three of the subjects are from Cranbrook and are allegedly involved in the Cranbrook incident.  A fourth subject from Kimberley was also arrested and believed to be associated to a break and enter that occurred on Sorenson Road near Kimberley on March 8.  All four are currently in custody and will appear in court later today.   The stolen property was recovered along with items believed to have been stolen from the Kimberley break in.

The investigation is ongoing and police have obtained a search warrant for a residence associated to those involved.  The subjects are known to police and it is believed the incidents were targeted.
