Two males, ages 16 and 18, from the southern shore have been arrested in connection with an investigation into a rash of break and enters.

The Ferryland RCMP says that since November 2012, there have been 80 break and enters reported to the detachment.

Suspects have been targeting cabins and sheds on the southern shore. Stolen items include ATVs, snowmobiles, chainsaws, generators, televisions and tools.

The two accused were released on a number of conditions and are to appear in provincial court in May.

The investigation into these matters is ongoing and police are asking anyone with information about these crimes or any other crime to call the Ferryland RCMP at 1-800-817-6880 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477).

    People need to read the story carefully. Nowhere does it say the two were charged or committed 80 break enters. The story states since November 2012 there have been 80 reported break ins in Ferryland Detachment's area. In regards to being released there are certain criteria which have to be met and in this case judicial remand would not have been approved. The RCMP investigation is ongoing.

    Why are they released? They not only broke into people's cabins and sheds once or twice, but eighty times. Honestly, young ones need more than just a slap on the wrist. I believe that the age of conviction needs to be lowered from eighteen to sixteen. Eighteen may have worked years ago, but somewhere, somehow, today's kids took a turn for the worst and are probably the most disrespectful and brazen generation. Not all kids are like this, but a good many, or even majority are. They need to be given what they deserve. If they can go out and steal other's personal property, they can face the consequences. Clearly they're old enough to be criminals, so they should be treated as such.
