Extensive vandalism and damages at a business in Kingston’s north end led to the arrest and charging of a local man and woman over the weekend.
Police responded to a call at the commercial business on John Counter Boulevard at approximately 3:19 a.m. on Sunday, Apr. 7, 2019. There, police spoke with an employee of the business, who reported he had arrived at the location and found that the office had been extensively vandalized. Additionally, the employee had found that two transport trucks had been driven into each other in the business’ parking lot.
Upon searching inside the business’ warehouse, police located the accused man and woman still on site. At approximately 3:31 a.m., both parties were arrested and taken into custody. When searching the accused man, police found two sets of keys in his pocket that belong to the business. Police also found multiple tools in the backpacks of both the accused man and the accused woman.
According to Kingston Police, further investigation at the business’ property found that another truck on the lot had been vandalized, and that multiple vehicles on site had wiring pulled off of them. Inside the warehouse, the door to the office showed signs of forced entry, and the office itself was in a complete disarray from being vandalized – papers had been burned, and multiple fire extinguishers had been discharged throughout the building.
The 33-year-old Kingston woman and the 30-year-old Kingston man were both charged with two counts of breaking and entering at a place other than a dwelling, and two counts of mischief over $5,000.
