Church Break & Enter suspects arrested in Ontario

March 7, 2014, Antigonish, Nova Scotia…Two suspects, wanted in connection with a recent spree of Break and Enters in Nova Scotia, were arrested yesterday in Ontario.

The Antigonish / Guysborough RCMP Street Crime Unit’s investigation into March 3rd Break and Enters at churches in Havre Boucher, Port Hastings and South Haven, Nova Scotia identified two male suspects. Their names were added to the national police database. When York Regional Police stopped a vehicle for impaired driving on Thursday, a routine check of the national database revealed that the two men were wanted in Nova Scotia.

“This is an excellent example of information sharing between police agencies,” says Sgt. Brian Rehill with Antigonish District RCMP. “Computerized reporting systems in conjunction with traditional investigative techniques led to the arrest of these two men.”

A 42-year-old Gander, Newfoundland man faces charges in Ontario of Impaired Driving by Drug, Possession of a Controlled Drug, Obstruction, Possession of Stolen Property and three Counts of Breach of Probation. A 19-year-old man faces charges of Possession of a Controlled Drug, Breach of Probation, Breach of an Undertaking and Possession of Stolen Property. Both are in custody in York, Ontario.
