Two Suspects Arrested Following Break and Enter Sprees in Oakville

 

Halton Police have arrested two suspects following a series of recent nighttime break and enters that occurred in Oakville.

According to police, on June 15, 2019, a residential break and enter occurred on Golden Meadow Trail, Oakville, where a 2007 Hummer SUV and numerous credit cards were stolen. Police say the stolen credit cards were later used at several restaurants and stores in Burlington, Oakville, and Toronto. The Hummer SUV was recovered several days later Oakville.

 Then, on June 30, 2019, another overnight break and enter occurred at a residence on Granby Drive, Oakville.  This time a wallet, a purse, and a bottle of scotch whiskey were stolen. This same night, there was an unsuccessful attempt to break into a second home on the same street.

On July 24, 2019, police arrested both the accused.  

Investigators also executed search warrants at both residences of the accused, resulting in the seizure of evidence linking them to the June 15 and June 30 crime sprees.
