RCMP has arrested three people in connection with 24 break, enter and thefts in the North Shore area in November.

P.E.I. RCMP has laid charges in what it’s calling a busy local organized break-and-enter group.

Police say three people are responsible for at least 24 break and enters, which took place in the communities of Rustico, Cavendish and Stanley Bridge during November.

The breaks and enters were concentrated in two cottage developments, Shining Waters Cottages and Fairway Cottages. There was also a break-in on Lyle Lane.

Queens District RCMP had experienced numerous complaints of cottage break-ins in the North Shore area last month.

An investigation was undertaken with assistance from several units including the Criminal Intelligence Service of P.E.I., Prince County Joint Forces Operations, Kings and Queens County RCMP and the RCMP Major Crime Unit.

A search warrant was executed at a residence in Rusticoville and tens of thousands of dollars worth of property was recovered. The RCMP is now in the process of contacting the owners of the items. Officers were also able to confiscate a vehicle they say was purchased with the proceeds of crime.

RCMP arrested two suspects Sunday: a 43-year-old male and a 41-year-old female, both from Rusticoville. The female was released from police custody and will be facing numerous break, enter and theft charges at a later date.

The male, Daryl Claeys was charged with 24 separate counts of break, enter and theft.

Claeys and has been remanded into custody and will appear in Charlottetown Provincial Court on Dec 17.

C. Timothy Kilcup, age 23, of Charlottetown, was arrested Monday in connection with several of the same break and enters. He was released on a promise to appear and will appear in court Dec. 17.

    Wonder how long before home invasions start happening on the Island, and how long before criminals start packing ? Haven't read any stories yet about handguns being used in Island crimes, but I have a feeling we'll all be hearing about that soon.

    Sounds like they should do 8-10 years in a 1 star resort; off island. They will probably get / worst case, 2 weeks in our famous 4 star sleepy hollow resort. Oh , I forgot to mention they might get probation .
