A pair of Lumby men have pled guilty to multiple counts of breaking and entering. The charges pertain to a crime spree last June when the Dark Rooster Coffee House, the Lumby pool, Café Mazzega, Edible Canvas Bistro, Sister's Restaurant and the Bottle Depot were all broken into the same day.
Three males were charged with the offenses, one being a minor who cannot be named. Lumby RCMP Cpl. Henry Proce says the young offender pled guilty some time ago and was sentenced last year. The other two men were 19 and 20 at the time of the incident.
"A long trial was avoided when, on May 6, Tye Kelly and Skylar Demers both pled guilty to a string of business break-and-enters that occurred in Lumby," Proce says. "At the time, some six local businesses were entered and items stolen."
He says Kelly and Demers will face terms of probation.
