Two men charged after police allegedly uncover stolen items at Beaverton home
Two men are facing numerous charges after police executed a search warrant at a Beaverton home over the weekend.
According to the Durham Regional Police, officers searched an Elmwood Avenue in Beaverton Saturday (Oct. 14) and located several stolen items including two fishing boats, lawnmowers, power tools and fishing equipment.
“It is believed that some of the property was stolen in the Kawartha Lakes area,” a media release reads.
Two suspects were arrested without incident.
Donald Dupuis, 47, of Elmwood Avenue has been charged with remove a vehicle identification number, possession of proceeds obtained by crime over $5,000, fail to comply with probation order, possession of a schedule one substance (cocaine) and possession of a schedule two substance (marijuana). He was released on a promise to appear.
Daniel Jamieson, 40, of Glenarm Road in Kawartha Lakes has been charged with possession of a schedule two substance (marijuana), possession of fentanyl, remove a vehicle identification number, possession of proceeds obtained by crime over $5,000, break and enter with intent and breach of a peace bond. He was held for a bail hearing.
Jamieson also faces charges from an incident in the Lindsay area.
Kawartha Lakes Police say he was among four individuals charged following an alleged break and enter at a Fieldside Road home.
Police say the home was broken into between 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on Sept. 13. The suspects, police say, removed property from the homeowner.
The homeowner reportedly told police that early in the day they had responded to a knock at their front door during which a male and female asked for directions. During that interaction, police say the homeowner made a note of the make and model of vehicle that was being driven by the couple. The homeowner had to leave the residence later in the morning and discovered the break and enter when they returned. The suspects made off with a quantity of cash, silverware, a small quantity of jewellery and two antique toys.
Kawartha Lakes Police have arrested and charged 40-year-old Jamieson of Woodville, 36-year-old Jonathan Edwards of Lindsay, and 21-year-old Dillon Perdue of Lindsay. A warrant has been issued for the fourth person, 26-year-old Cherri LeClaire of Oakville. Edwards, Jamieson and Perdue have all been charged with Break and Enter and Possession of Stolen Property. They will appear in court, in Lindsay, on Oct. 26.
