A Mitchell homeowner managed to scare off some would-be thieves earlier this week.

Perth County OPP said just after 1 a.m. on February 11, officers responded to a break-and-enter call on Morenz Drive. The homeowner saw two males trying to enter his locked garage. The homeowner yelled at the pair, who then fled.

Police searched the area but didn’t locate any suspects.

The two males were wearing black hoodies and black backpacks.

Anyone with more information should call Perth County OPP or Crime Stoppers.
