NRPS: $30,000 in stolen property recovered

Police say they’ve recovered more than $30,000 in stolen property following an investigation in Niagara Falls.

Two men are facing a combined total of 40 criminal charges in connection with a series of break-and-enters into storage units in Niagara Falls.

Police say 20 people had items stolen from two storage unit locations.

Detectives recovered and returned more than $10,000 worth of stolen property back to the victims, however, the remaining property is “still outstanding.”

Police say the men utilized a stolen pick-up truck to transport the stolen items, and also used an empty storage unit at one of the locations to store items that they had not yet been able to transport.  Video surveillance and the owners of the storage unit locations contributed to the investigation.

Charged are 47-year-old Jason Perkins and 34-year-old Guy Moore, both of Niagara Falls.

Perkins faces 20 counts of break-and-enter, 12 counts of possession of stolen property, possession of break and enter tools, two breaches of probation and failure to comply with undertaking.

Police said Perkins was arrested Oct. 12, and is currently in custody awaiting a bail hearing as of Oct. 20. and that a warrant is being issued for the arrest of Moore.
