KAWARTHA LAKES - Five men are in police custody after an alleged break-in in Kawartha Lakes.
Provincial police say they were called to a local business early Monday morning after receiving reports that a group of men were removing items from the premises.
They allege the men were gone by the time officers arrived, but were all found a short time later with the help of police dogs.
Police say the five men live throughout Toronto and Ajax and range in age from 19 to 35.
They face a total of 18 charges between them including multiple counts of break-and-enter with intent to commit an indictable offence, mischief and obstructing a peace officer.
The men are scheduled to appear in court in Lindsay next month.
