Two men from Oshawa have been charged with a battery of offenses in connection to two burglaries at the homes of two separate Oshawa seniors.

The first break-and-enter took place on Oshawa’s Lasalle Ave on March 3. A woman called police to report two men entered her house a side-window, stole jewelry, cash and other items and then slipped out through a backdoor while she slept.

Two days later, on March 5, another elderly woman called the cops from her home on Oshawa’s Mohawk St. She reported her kitchen was “disturbed” and items were missing from her house.

After an investigation, police arrested two men they suspect to be involved.

Alexzander Patton, 26 of Oshawa, caught 20 charges including two counts of break and enter, four counts of possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000, six counts of breach of probation theft of a vehicle and numerous fraud charges.

Justin Morgan, 25 of Oshawa is charged with break and enter and possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000.

Anyone with information pertinent to the investigation can call Det. Franssen at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 5614, or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
