Several Hamilton residents are facing a number of charges in relation to a series of commercial break and enters that took place earlier this year, according to Hamilton Police.

Police said in a press release issued Friday (Nov. 6) that in mid-June 2020, they received a report of a commercial break and enter to an automotive business in the city’s East End.

During the incident, police say a Ford F150 pick-up truck was stolen. Over the course of four months, several other commercial entries took place in the Hamilton area.

According to police, the Hamilton Bear Unit has continued to investigate these incidents and ultimately established a connection. The pick-up truck stolen from the June entry is believed to have been involved in four commercial entries:

  • August 23, 2020, entry to a business on Stonechurch Road East where a large number of vacuum cleaners and home health-care items were stolen.
  • August 26, 2020, entry to a pharmacy on Queenston Road in Stoney Creek. Pharmaceutical drugs and products valued in the area of $100,000 were stolen.
  • September 24, 2020, entry to a car dealership on Upper James Street. Tools and automotive supplies were stolen.
  • October 16, 2020, entry to a business in the Nebo Road area. A large quantity of sanitizer and cleaning supplies were stolen.

On Wednesday (Nov. 4), police say they executed search warrants at two residences located in the east end of Hamilton and in Hannon.

Police say they located two shotguns, ammunition, over $100,000 in stolen pharmaceuticals, approximately $100,000 in stolen property and a quantity of cocaine during the search. The items were all seized as evidence.

During the course of the investigation, three adults were arrested and their matter was brought before the court on Wednesday when they faced numerous charges related to firearms, commercial entries and possession of stolen property and drugs.

This investigation remains ongoing and detectives anticipate proceeding with additional arrests and criminal charges.
