Published January 28, 2022 at 11:32 am

A St. Catharines man has been charged after ten separate break-and-enters between January 10 and January 26 that involved businesses in Grimsby, St. Catharines, Niagara Falls, Thorold and Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Car dealerships and auto repair shops seemed to be a specialty for the suspect as a large number of cars were stolen during his 16-day B-and-E spree.

Niagara Police say he used to enter businesses by smashing in glass doors or windows and then steal whatever cash he could find on site. After that, he turned his attention to whatever vehicles could be taken.

In one case, the suspect grabbed a handful of key fobs and then returned three times to a St. Catharines car dealership to steal different automobiles from the lot.

Niagara Police says the amount of property damage, stolen cash and vehicles is in excess of $30,000.

Eventually they identified the suspect and arrested him yesterday (January 27) in Thorold.

Jeremy Troy Boyer, 32, of St. Catharines has been charged with 10 counts of break-and-enter, five counts of auto theft and one count f failing to comply with a releases order.

He was held in custody to attend a video bail hearing today in St. Catharines.

This investigation remains ongoing by detectives.  Officers are looking to get into Boyer’s residence after they get a search warrant.
