On May 3, 2022, a media release was issued requesting assistance in identifying the suspects. One of the suspects was identified with help from the community and further investigation led to the identification of the second suspect.

On the July 15, 2022, investigators from the 1 District Criminal Investigations Bureau executed a search warrant at a residence in Georgetown.  One of the suspects was arrested inside the residence.

Steven Collins (42) of Georgetown has been charged with: Break, Enter and Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Under $5000

Collins was released from custody on an undertaking with a court date.

The second suspect has been identified but remains outstanding. Police are making efforts to locate and arrest this suspect and his identity is not being released at this time.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to contact the 1 District Criminal Investigations Bureau (Break and Enter Team) at 905-825-4777 ext.2416.
