A couple of burglars got caught on the job in Limoges one night so they went over to Winchester instead another night and got caught there too.

Brendon Charbonneau, 19, of Navan, and Zachary Minarik-Eastman, 19, of Winchester, both face a series of charges related to two break and enter incidents that occurred May 3 in Limoges and May 12 in Winchester.

A 16-year-old from the Ottawa area also faces charges in relation to the May 3 incident at Limoges. His name is withheld under the terms of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

Russell County OPP answered a call just after 6 a.m., May 3, about a break-in at a residence on Calypso Road in Limoges. Police determined that the trio involved were trying to steal items outside of the residence.

The 16-year-old accused is charged with break-and-enter with intent to commit a crime, possession of burglary tools, and possession of stolen property under a value of $5000. He is scheduled for a future provincial youth court session in L’Orignal.

Both Charbonneau and Minarik-Eastman are charged with break-and-enter with intent to commit a crime, possession of burglary tools, and possession of stolen property under $5000 in value. Charbonneau is also charged with methamphetamine possession while Minarik-Eastman is charged with breach of a legal recognizance. They were both later released with a demand to appear in provincial court in L’Orignal at a later date.

Stormont-Dundas-Glengarry OPP got a call May 12, at about 5:11 p.m., about a break-in at a Winchester residence. Police investigation indicated the culprits used a stolen truck from Russell Township to go to the house and try to carry off various items.

Charbonneau and Minarik-Eastman were caught and charged with failure to obey a legal undertaking, possession of stolen property, and methamphetamine possession. Charbonneau is also charged with break-and-enter, and breach of probation. Minarik-Eastman is also charged with failure to obey a legal recognizance.

They were both taken into custody for a bail hearing and are scheduled for a later session of provincial court in Cornwall.
