Three burglars were caught inside the Timmins sports store they allegedly broke into early Sunday morning.

City police refer to it as “an Algonquin Boulevard sports equipment retail store”.  The owner of O’Reilly Sports has also reported the incident on Facebook.

Police say the front doo was forced open with break-in tools.  When police arrived, they found the 23-year-old woman, a 39-year-old man and a 43-year-old man inside.  They say the trio was in the midst of stealing sports equipment and apparel.

They’re charged with break and enter with intent; possession of property obtained by crime; and possession of break-in instruments.
