Police continue to investigate two recent break-and-enter thefts on the same road in Perth East.

Both happened on November 30 on Perth Road 145, one just after 5:30 a.m. and the second just after 8 a.m.

Police say the suspects broke into a garage on both properties. They took money and bank cards from a vehicle in the first case. And in the second break and enter, thieves made off with a GPS, motorcycle helmets and money.

Police are reminding residents to keep vehicles and outbuildings locked and to never leave keys in plain view.

In West Perth, one person was arrested and charged following a recent break-and-enter.

On November 30 just before 6 p.m., Perth County OPP officers received a report of a break-and-enter at a home on Perth Road 180, and that the suspect was still in the home. The homeowners had fled to call police and when officers arrived they allegedly found a damaged door, which they believe was the entry point, and that suspect had a knife.

An arrest was made without incident.

A 31-year old man faces three charges including breaking and entering and two counts of failing to comply with release.

The charges have yet to be proven in court.
