Two arrests have been made in connection to break-ins at a Mount Pearl business.

On July 8, RNC responded to a report related to a break and enter that had occurred at a business located on Topsail Road in Mount Pearl. Responding officers determined that entry had been gained to the business and property of the business had been taken.

Later that same day, police responded to the same business in Mount Pearl. Responding officers were informed that a break and enter was in progress. RNC Police Dog Service was engaged to attend the location as well. On arrival, the suspects were gone from the area, and investigating officers began gathering evidence at the scene.

As a result of the investigation, two males have been arrested and charged in connection with these events. On July 15, Kenneth Rees, a 45-year-old male from Mount Pearl, was arrested and has been charged with two counts of break and enter, two counts of disguise with intent, and possession of a break-in instrument.

Officers also determined that Rees was wanted in connection with an outstanding warrant related to a break and enter that occurred in June of 2022. He was held in custody to appear in Provincial Court.
