LETHBRIDGE, AB – A 20-year old man is facing nearly two dozens charges, in connection to two home break-ins.

Lethbridge Police say a homeowner heard a window break around 1 p.m. on Sunday (Jan.31) at their home along 18 Street South, and was then confronted by a man holding a handgun. The suspect stole a bike and quickly ran off to another house, a block away.

He forced his way in to the second home through the back door, where someone was inside with two children at the time. Again, the man fled after confronting the homeowner with a knife in hand, but he was arrested at gunpoint a short distance away.

Alex Styra, 20 of Lethbridge, has been charged with 23 total offences, including break and enter, assault with a weapon and possession of a dangerous weapon.

He remains in custody at this time, and will appear in Lethbridge Provincial Court on Friday (Feb. 5).

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
