A break-and-enter in progress at a local business was busted by police and led to three people being charged.

The owner of a local professional services office called Timmins Police early this morning (May 25) after CCTV footage alerted them to the break-in. 

Police say three suspects had broken into a shed that stored business supplies at the back of the property.

"Timmins Police arrived on scene while the break-in was still in progress and arrested three suspects without incident," reads a news release. 

Police allege all of the suspects had break-and-enter instruments, one was wearing a disguise and one person had a make-shift weapon. 

A 25-year-old, 26-year-old and 28-year-old, who each live in Timmins but have no fixed address, are charged with:

  • Break and enter with intent
  • Possession of property obtained by crime 
  • Possession of break-and-enter instruments 
  • Trespass at night

The 26-year-old is also charged with two counts of using a disguise with criminal intent,. 

There are also additional charges of failing to comply with a release order and possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose for the 25-year-old.

Each of the accused is in police custody waiting for bail hearings today.

None of the charges have been tested in court.
