Additional charges have been laid in connection to a break and enter investigation dating back to April.

On Friday, July 19, the Break, Enter and Auto Theft team of Waterloo Regional Police charged a 34-year-old Kitchener man in connection to the investigation.

Police also charged a 36-year-old Kitchener woman on Friday, July 12.

They face charges including possession of stolen property and firearms related offences.

In late May, police found thousands of dollars' worth of suspected stolen property in a storage container on Riverbend Drive in Kitchener.

Among the items that were seized:

  • ten firearms, seven of which were loaded
  • more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition
  • power tools
  • landscaping equipment
  • bicycles
  • an ATV
  • fishing and hunting equipment
  • a snow machine

Police did later confirm the property was stolen in various break and enters within the region over the past few months.

It has since been returned to its rightful owners.

The same suspects were also arrested and charged in connection to stolen property located at a rural property in Kitchener in April.

Police seized items including nine motorcycles, eight snowmobiles and five trailers.

Investigators estimate the value of all the stolen property that was seized at over $750,000.
