A duffel bag full of cell phones and other items gave it away to police, that the man holding the bag was likely the one who had just broken into a nearby cell phone store.

An intrusion alarm early this morning brought Timmins Police to what they call “an Algonquin Boulevard cell phone retail store”.  As they arrived, they spotted a man running away with the duffel bag. Inside it they found $12,365.00 worth of phones; other products; about $350.00 cash; and break-in tools that police say damaged the door and display cases.

A 43-year-old man is charged with five criminal offences.
