Two people including a Brampton resident have been charged following a botched break-in near Guelph that police say was foiled thanks to a Good Samaritan.

The break-in happened around 11:30 a.m. on Thursday (Sept. 28) according to the OPP, saying officers from the Wellington County detachment were called to a residence on Alma Street in Rockwood, approximately 12 kilometres northeast of Guelph.

Police say a Good Samaritan witnessed two people make a “forced entry” into the home and contacted police about a break-and-enter in progress.

When officers arrived on the scene they located two suspects who were arrested and charged, including a 34-year-old from Brampton.

Jade Innis, 34, of Brampton, and Justin Nolan Kack, 41, of Rockwood have both been charged by the OPP with break-and-enter a dwelling house with intent to commit an indictable offence.

The accused are scheduled to appear in the Ontario Court of Justice in Guelph on Nov. 21.
