Third man facing charges in eastern Ontario break-and-enter

LAURENTIAN VALLEY TOWNSHIP, Ont. — Provincial police say three men are now facing charges in a break-and-enter in eastern Ontario in which the victims were allegedly restrained by two armed suspects.

Investigators say the suspects were carrying firearms when they entered a home in Laurentian Valley Township, Ont., and placed the occupants in restraints.

Police allege the suspects, who were in disguise, stole cash from inside the home and made off in the victims' vehicle.

They say the vehicle was later recovered.

Two people were charged last month, and police say a third person was arrested on Tuesday.

A 43-year-old man from Petawawa, Ont., was charged with two counts of robbery using a firearm, two counts of forcible confinement, and one count each of breaking and entering, disguise with intent and theft of a motor vehicle.
