One of two people arrested in connection with a series of business break-ins is linked to similar crimes that took place throughout Hamilton this summer, according to police.

Investigators are trying to identify two more suspects, according to Hamilton police.

“Investigators linked one of the suspects to a series of similar style entries from July and August of this year that took place throughout our city,” according to police in a press release today (Aug. 29).

On Friday, Aug. 18 at 1 a.m. police were alerted about the crime and arrested one of the suspects who had allegedly entered a commercial establishment in the Waterdown area along Dundas Street East (Highway 5), between Hamilton Street and Highway 6 in Flamborough.

Paul St. Pierre faces charges, such as eight counts of breaking and entering to commit theft, two counts of breaking and entering with intent, two counts of disguising with intent, two counts of theft under $5,000, two counts of possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000 and possession of burglary tools.

St. Pierre was wanted on a Canada-wide parole revocation warrant at the time he allegedly committed the break-ins. He has been before the courts and his bail was opposed, according to police.

A 43-year-old female from Hamilton was also charged with breaking and entering to commit theft on the same day as St. Pierre. She will appear in court on Sept. 14. Police did not identify the woman.
