Mississauga partners of a Guelph business have been arrested after a lengthy investigation.

According to police, the arrests follow a December 30, 2021 fire at a business in Guelph that caused $450,000 worth of damage.

Investigators found that in the days leading up to the fire, two part-owners of the business had nearly doubled the value of their content insurance for the building.

Following the investigation by the Guelph Fire Department, Guelph Police Service and an engineering firm hired by the insurance company, a 48-year-old Mississauga male and a 44-year-old Mississauga male have been arrested by the Guelph Police Service.

They have both been charged with arson and attempted fraud over $5,000. They will appear in a Guelph court June 7, 2022.

Their names have not been released by police as their investigation continues.
