NORTH DUNDAS — Two male youths have been charged with breaking into Rideau Auctions after pressing their luck and getting caught during a second illicit foray onto the County Rd. 31 property within a two-day period this month.
The accused teens are alleged to have broken into the business sometime overnight, Nov. 19-20, where they “attempted” to remove several items, according to the SD&G OPP’s ensuing Nov. 20 investigation.
The brazen duo then returned at 8:10 the following morning to steal more items, Nov. 21, only to be “intercepted” by Rideau Auctions staff. SD&G OPP officers arrived to arrest two young men, one 16 years old, the other 17.
Both teens were already on probation.
They are individually charged with: Break and Enter: Possession of Property obtained by crime – over $5000; and Theft over $5,000 — as well as two charges apiece for breaking probation. The 16-year-old faces an additional count related to breaching a court’s previously imposed conditions, plus a charge of possessing break-in instruments.
The accused individuals, who cannot be named under the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act, were held in custody pending a Cornwall bail hearing.
