Brampton pair busted for break-ins
Two Brampton men have been arrested in connection with a string of break-ins— including one in Georgetown— which targeted cellular telephone stores in Halton.

Members of Halton Police’s One District Criminal Investigations Bureau made the arrests (yesterday) Thursday. The break-ins, which began in August, occurred in the early morning hours while the stores were closed. Suspects used a rock and sledgehammer to enter the stores.

Subsequent to the arrest of the accused, two search warrants were executed at their homes in Brampton.

During a search of the homes investigators seized several cellular telephones and a quantity of accessories believed to have been taken during the entries. Police also located additional evidence linking the suspects to these crimes.

Based on the investigation, the accused are believed to be responsible for the following break and enters:

• August 10— Rogers Plus Store located at Unit “C”– 2500 Appleby Line in Burlington. The value of the damage caused to the premises during this entry was estimated at $1,500. Nothing was taken.

• August 24— Worldlynx Wireless Store located at 330 Guelph Street in Georgetown. While inside the pair took several wireless routers valued at $1,200.

• November 21— Rogers Wireless Store located at 850 Main Street East in Milton. While inside the suspects took cell phones and accessories valued at $7,800.

• December 3— Future Shop Store located at 3060 Davidson Court in Burlington. Taken were cell phones and accessories valued at $29,280.

Charged with four counts each of break and enter, breach of recognizance and possession of stolen property are Brian Moore, 26, and Kevin Thomas, 20, both of Brampton. Both men were held for bail.
