The Timmins Police Service has charged two Schumacher men with break-in related offences stemming from two separate incidents that occurred in January of this year and most recently, during the early morning hours of Saturday, March 28 at a South Porcupine pharmacy.

Timmins Police Service officers responding to the most recent occurrence gathered evidence left at the scene as well as video surveillance which assisted in identifying the suspects.

Both Schumacher men were identified, located, and arrested a few scant hours after the Saturday morning break-in at the pharmacy.

As the investigation unfolded, sufficient evidence was gathered by the investigating officers with the Timmins Police Service to charge these same men with the January break-in, which occurred at the same location in South Porcupine.

As a result of these incidents and the successful concurrent investigations, two Schumacher men, one a 21-year-old and the other a 25-year-old, have been charged with two separate counts each of:

  • Break and Enter with Intent to Commit an Indictable Offence contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada
  • Possession of Property Obtained by Crime contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada
  • Possession of Break-In Instruments contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada.

Both accused men were released from police custody on respective Undertakings requiring that they attend at Provincial Court in Timmins on June 16 to answer to the charges laid against them.
