Newton claimed she was an employee with the health unit and had returned to pick up her belongings.
The Health unit confirmed Newton was not an employee, nor did they know her.
As a result, Newton was arrested and charged with break and enter with intent, and possession of break-in instruments. Newton will appear in court in February 2022 to answer to the charges.
