2 GTA Males Arrested; Police Seeking 3rd in Commercial Break-ins
Two Toronto-area males face a long list of charges after Guelph Police Service officers interrupted a break and enter in progress Thursday morning.
Approximately 6:20 a.m. the owner of a business on Wellington Street West called police to report the break-in. Three males arrived in a stolen BMW SUV, which was reversed through the business’ front doors. The males then loaded approximately $10,000 worth of tools and copper wire into the rear of the BMW.
Officers arrived while the males were still on scene. One was placed under arrest inside the business while a second attempted to flee but was arrested nearby with the assistance of Guelph Police canine unit Echo.
A third male, described as having brown skin, early 30s with a slim build and short black hair, is still outstanding.
Investigation revealed the two arrested males had also been involved in a break and enter earlier in the week at a Woodlawn Road West electronics store. In that incident, a glass door was smashed and suspects removed approximately $10,000 worth of equipment.
Two Toronto-area males, aged 32 and 31, are each charged with two counts of break and enter, possessing stolen property over $5,000 and possessing stolen property under $5,000. They were held for bail hearings Monday.
