Two suspects wanted in connection with a string of reported vehicle break-ins in Stoney Creek have been arrested, according to Hamilton police.
Investigators allege the two men, aged 24 and 40, broke into the underground garage of a Village Green Boulevard apartment building on Monday, Aug. 5 between 10 p.m. and 10:50 p.m.
The pair allegedly began busting into parked vehicles and “stealing various personal items” once inside, police said.
On Sunday night, an altercation at the Centre on Barton Street at around 8 p.m. led to the arrest of one of the two alleged robbers after officers were able to identify one of the suspects, who police say was a combatant in an unrelated incident.
The two men are facing multiple charges, including break and enter, mischief and theft under $5,000. Police allege the pair broke into 17 vehicles and took property from 11 of them.
Additional charges are pending, according to police.
