Terrace RCMP are reminding area residents to lock up after a series of break and enters.
Investigators say there have been five break-ins since last Friday, August 14th.
The most recent incident saw a couple wake up early Tuesday morning to find an intruder in their bedroom.
RCMP say the husband was able to catch and subdue the suspect until police arrived.
Mounties arrested a youth who was in breach of his conditions stemming from similar incidents.
Constable Angela Rabut says one of the simplest ways to deter thieves is to lock your doors and lock windows in the lower levels of your home.
RCMP also have a number of tips to keep your home safe.
