Edmonton Journal - - CITY - JU­RIS GRANEY

Two thieves who tar­geted more than 30 prop­er­ties in Ed­mon­ton and its satel­lite cities by kick­ing in the front doors of homes and bur­gling them in broad day­light have been ar­rested by po­lice fol­low­ing a month-long in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Po­lice said Fri­day that the two sus­pects robbed at least 20 homes in Ed­mon­ton and an­other 10 in Spruce Grove, Stony Plain, Devon and St. Al­bert in the past month be­fore be­ing caught.

Ear­lier this month they were spot­ted break­ing and en­ter­ing a home in Devon in which a large quan­tity of firearms was al­legedly stolen.

Search war­rants ex­e­cuted at both the sus­pects’ homes led to the re­cov­ery of a sig­nif­i­cant amount of sus­pected stolen prop­erty, po­lice said.

Mitchell An­donov, 33, of Spruce Grove, and Michael Howard, 32, of St. Al­bert, are each fac­ing 32 charges re­lated to break and en­ter and possession of firearms.

Charges against a 32-year-old woman have yet to be sworn be­fore a Jus­tice of the Peace, po­lice said.
