Two charged after Augusta break-in

Two people have been arrested after a break-in at a storage facility in Augusta. 

OPP officers say the incident happened Tuesday at about 5:00 PM on Second Concession Road.  

The owner of the facility noticed an open door and was reportedly “confronted by two people and hit by a pepper-spray-like substance” when he went to investigate. 

Officers say the two suspects then ran away on foot before being arrested, with help from the OPP’s Emergency Response Team and Canine Unit.

One suspect, a 26-year-old from Russell, is also facing one charge of administering a noxious thing, two counts of failing to comply with a probation order, and three counts of failing to comply with a release order. 

Meanwhile, the second suspect, a Kingston 33-year-old, also faces two counts of failing to comply with an undertaking. 

Officers say the two also have outstanding warrants from other police services. They were reportedly held for a bail hearing.
