The Timmins Police have made an arrest in a break and enter investigation. A home was broken into in the North end twice over several months. $35, 000 worth of tools, jewellery, coins, and alcohol were taken. Police have only seized about $2, 000 worth of items.

A 36 year old man from Timmins is being hit six charges in connection to the break and enters. He will appear in court in July.

The charges are as follows:

– Two counts of break, enter and commit theft
– Two counts of possession of property obtained by crime under $5000
– Two counts of possession of property obtained by crime over $5000

The home owners were away for an extended period of time, which has prompted the Timmins Police to remind the public to keep their homes safe while away.

 

“With the summer months approaching, the Timmins Police Service would like to remind residents that when leaving their home for an extended period of time, steps can be taken to avoid becoming a victim of theft. Those include refraining from posting information about vacations on social media, enlisting a trusted friend to check on your residence, and placing both outdoor and indoor lights on a timer.”
