Pair arrested after spree of break-ins
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.
